Masquerade Ball Cures Winter Blues

The Polish Scholarship Fund invites the public to join the fun at its annual Masquerade Ball on Saturday, Feb. 21 from 8 p.m. to 2 a.m. The gym at Sacred Heart School, 1001 Park Ave., Syracuse will host the affair and be transformed into a grand ballroom as costumed revelers dance the night away to tangos, waltzes and a mix of traditional Polish music and hits from around the world.

The gala serves as a benefit for the Polish Scholarship Fund, Inc., which is a 501c-3, non-profit organization that is celebrating its 50th year of awarding scholarships to students of Polish descent in Onondaga County. The PSF has awarded more than $250,000 over the past 49 years, and it will award more than $10,000 to students in 2004.

The cost to attend the gala is $20/person in advance and $25/person at the door. Admission includes a few complimentary beverages and appetizers, in addition to free parking. Formal attire or a costume is strongly recommended. Advance sale tickets are available at APR Travel Agency, 908 Park Ave., and Roman’s Agency, 1417 Milton Ave.

The Masquerade Ball is just one of the cultural events the PSF will sponsor in 2004, culminating with the 50th annual Polish Festival, June 11-13 in Clinton Square. For more information on the Masquerade Ball, log onto
