In 1952, Dr. S. A. Collom and a gathering of Texarkana citizens founded the “Temple Home for Crippled Children” in response to the polio epidemic that was devastating our nation. The Temple Center, an Easter Seals affiliate, has evolved and expanded into a premier facility providing physical, occupational and speech therapy for children and adults with disabilities.
The Temple Center will be celebrating the thirteenth annual Phantom Ball at the Hilton Garden Inn and Texarkana Convention Center on Saturday night, February 27, 2016. The annual gala benefits the client services of Temple Memorial Rehabilitation Center.
This year’s ball will honor someone special from the community as the “Phantom”. The criteria for “Phantom” is someone who gives generously to their community, financially or donating their time, and someone who gives to the Temple Center.
Sponsorship and underwriting opportunities are available. Silent auction items donations are appreciated. For tickets or more information call Anita Carver at (903) 794 – 2705.
Cocktail, black-tie or formal wear, along with masks and fans, are encouraged.
