Enjoy a night out with a live band, silent auction, and delicious food. Did I mention it’s also for a great cause? Mix, mingle & dance.
About this event
All proceeds from this event will provide funding for the children who live at the Ouachita Children’s Center to go on day trips around the Hot Springs area and shopping.
The event will be held at Trademark Realty, located at 1060 DeSoto Blvd in Hot Springs Village in the community room. Turn off of DeSoto onto Broto to get to the lower level on the backside of the building. This is where you will park and enter the event.
The event will start at 4:30 pm and end at 8:30 pm. You can mix, mingle & dance while enjoying live music. There will also be a silent auction going on for you to make bids on special items. In addition, there will be door prizes throughout the night.
Dinner will be served from 5 pm – 8 pm. This will help accommodate all attendees whether they prefer to eat early or late. The silent auction will begin at 4:30 and will end at 7:30 pm. Each guest will bring their tickets to get in and get their choice entrée dinner. We will need to know which entrée you want to ensure we have enough for everyone. We will also have a buffet-style hors d’oeuvres and dessert table set up to enjoy as well. Pitts BBQ will be making some of her delicious mini muffuletta’s, and Kraemer’s will be donating five different cheese spreads to enjoy. We will also have some other delicious snacks out as well as a charcuterie board.
Entrée choices are our delicious New Orleans-style shrimp & grits, our mouthwatering red beans with andouille sausage served over rice, award-winning spaghetti, or our signature cheese sauce shrimp & artichoke pasta. All entrées are served with salad or coleslaw, and bread.

The event will not cover the total cost of the day trips and shopping for the children. This is why we need people to sponsor the children as well. You can sponsor a full child or do partial sponsorship. If we exceed our budget then we will bring the children shopping for new school shoes and an outfit of their choice.

- Partial Sponsorship Choices

We want to take these children on day trips to get them out of the home and let them feel like regular children. Help them see there are all types of good things in life. Life can truly be whatever we choose for it to be.
