Indiana Fire Juniors will host its third Fire and Ice Ball this year with a goal of raising $50,000 for youth soccer. The organization is the host team at Grand Park, featuring 75 teams and 1,100 players on its travel side. It offers soccer for ages 4 through 23.
The Fire and Ice Ball, 6:30 p.m. Feb. 3 at Mill Top Banquet and Conference Center in Noblesville, is a fundrasier for kids who can’t afford to play.
“The Fire and Ice Ball was my vision when we came together to find another way to support community athletes that could otherwise not afford to play soccer without some additional assistance,” said Mark Webber, IFJ executive director.
Phil Sever, Fire and Ice chairperson, said the event allows kids to experience the successes and failures that comes with playing sports.
“This event is really important for the greater Hamilton County community,” he said. “It provides opportunities for these kids to be involved in this when otherwise they wouldn’t be able to participate because of the expense. I wanted to be able to provide a conduit for other kids that didn’t have resources, to watch that child grow through youth sports.”
The event will feature silent and live auctions, a dinner, dancing and an after-party at a location not yet announced. Tickets are $95 for individuals, $450 for a table of five and $800 for a table of 10.
“It provides an outstanding opportunity for people in our area and for kids to be part of something special,” Sever said.
