ACC's Black & White Ball to benefit Girls on the Run

Girls on the Run of San Diego, a character development and fitness program for girls 8 to 13 years old, will benefit from the Association of Corporate Counsel’s 12th Annual Black and White Ball on Saturday, March 2.

The Black & White Ball provides in-house counsel -- and the firms that support them -- an opportunity to socialize with one another while raising money in support of a deserving local charity.

“Girls on the Run is making a tremendous difference in the lives of so many young girls, and their families, across San Diego County," said Jon Hellings, executive director of ACC's San Diego chapter.

“We believe all girls deserve to participate in healthy after-school activities,” said Amy Jerome, executive director of Girls on the Run of San Diego. “Our volunteer coaches inspire young girls to lead joyful, healthy and confident lives at Girls on the Run’s 30 sites around San Diego County.

"One-third of the girls participating in our program are students at schools in low-income neighborhoods where the program is fully funded through scholarships.”

More than 700 people are expected to attend the ball this year. It begins at 6 p.m. at the Manchester Grand Hyatt with a reception and silent auction, followed by dinner and live auction at 7:30 p.m. Dancing and casino games round out the evening.
