The Catholic Charities Ball Celebrates 40 Years!

40 years ago, friends of Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Arlington organized and hosted the first Catholic Charities Ball. It’s been a volunteer-led effort and annual winter tradition in the diocese ever since – a beautiful, elegant evening whose primary purpose is to celebrate the work of Catholic Charities and raise funds to serve vulnerable men, women, children and families who need our care.

Most Reverend Michael F. Burbidge and the Ball Leadership invite you to join us at the 40th Catholic Charities Ball on Friday, February 11, 2022, at 7pm at The Ritz-Carlton in Tysons Corner. 

Help us reach our goal of $1.3 million to support the ministries that serve thousands of our neighbors in need.   

    The health and safety of our staff, volunteers, clients and community remain paramount as Catholic Charities carries out our ministry. In the months leading up to the Ball, we will continue to monitor and take appropriate precautions in accordance with CDC, OSHA and the Commonwealth of Virginia’s recommendations and guidelines to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
