McKENZIE, TENN. – Tickets for Bethel University’s 5th Annual Twinkle Ball go on sale this week beginning Wednesday, Nov. 2. The Twinkle Ball will be on Wednesday, Nov. 30 from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Baker Fieldhouse Gymnasium on Bethel’s McKenzie campus.
The Twinkle Ball gives young girls and their mothers (or someone who is motherly to them) the chance to dress up and celebrate the magic of the holiday season in the girliest ways imaginable. This year’s theme is “Twinkle Has Visions of Sugarplums” with most activities centered around things associated with the Christmas ballet, “The Nutcracker.”
“We are so excited to be hosting this event for our fifth year,” said Myra Carlock, one of the coordinators of the event. “It truly is a special evening that our girls and mothers look forward to.
“It really started as an event to get people to the Bethel campus to see what we have to offer here, but it has turned into something that people begin asking about in late summer. They really can’t wait to hear the theme and purchase their tickets.”
Carlock said there are typically between 8 and 10 different stations where participants can make things that they take home with them.
Tickets are $25 for a mother/daughter. Mothers with more than one daughter can purchase additional tickets for $7 each. Tickets can be purchased at the Bethel University Bookstore. But they must be purchased in advance by Monday, Nov. 28. For more information about the Twinkle Ball, call the Bethel Bookstore at 731-352-4094 or Myra Carlock at 731-352-4090.
