Family Services Association, 226 N. Fourth St., Steubenville, is once again hosting its annual "Calypso Celebration" which will be held May 2 at St. Florian Hall in Wintersville.
This year's event will feature a Chinese auction with the grand prize being a seven-night stay at Tidewater Reach Resort in Panama City Beach, Fla.
"We were just thrilled by the donation of our grand prize from Kyle Brown at IBEW Local Union 246. We know whoever wins this trip will have a wonderful time," said James McGrail, committee chair.
The celebration begins at 6 p.m. with island cocktails featuring a "Fun Island" included with the cost of admission. A Caribbean buffet will follow, and both Steubenville High School's and Catholic Central High School's steel drum bands will provide the evening's entertainment.
Sponsorships are available, ranging from $250 to $1,000. Additionally, tables may be purchased as well as individual tickets.
The purpose of the evening is to raise awareness and funds for the Family Services Association, which has been providing services such as day care, mental health counseling, adult guardianship and representative payee for the local community for more than 100 years.
"This organization is one of the best kept secrets in the Tri-State Area, and we are wanting to change that," said board President David Lamb. "The services that we provide to those in need have a substantial impact on their lives, and we want to ensure that these services will be available for years to come," Lamb said.
