Purpose of the Glass Slipper Ball

The Zonta Club of the Pikes Peak Area is conducting its 4th Annual Glass Slipper Ball featuring the Best of the Chefs. The Glass Slipper Ball is open to the public and supports the charitable efforts of the local Zonta Club.

Proceeds from the 2009 GSB provided continuing support for the Life Skills Curriculum, which was created with funds from the 2008 event and is offered to residents of TESSA's safe-house. Again this year, a portion of funds raised will be directed toward raising community awareness of the presence of human trafficking right here in Colorado Springs. Zonta also provides a yearly financial award to one local woman, aged 16-20, each year who has demonstrated a commitment to volunteerism.

Local chefs, florists, musicians and dancers donate their respective skills to help give the Glass Slipper Ball a professionally-produced atmosphere under a volunteer organization's budget. As a result, the maximum amount of funds are available to raise community awareness on the status of women in dangerous situations and to provide direct support to the local community safe-house.

Post-event comments encouraged the Club to pursue the event again in 2010 and partners are again joining the opportunity to be a part of it.
