The Masquerade Ball is one of southern Delaware’s premier events, celebrating the incredible work by the Boys & Girls Clubs, emphasizing the significant impact the clubs make in the lives of our youth and the opportunity to honor the spirit and tradition of community support.

“Our organization and our communities cannot succeed alone. Our success comes from extraordinary individuals who are always by our side, to help improve, include and empower the youth in our communities,” said George Krupanski, Boys & Girls Clubs of Delaware President and CEO.

This year, two remarkable individuals will be recognized for their support of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Delaware:

  • Charles L. Burton, fifth-generation owner of the i.g. Burton Auto Dealerships located in Milford and in Seaford, will receive the Great Futures Award; and
  • Leolga Wright, retired federal employee with 33 years of service to the agricultural community in Sussex County, will receive the Be Great Award.

Individual tickets are available for $100 or $1,000 for a table of 10.

Those attending are encouraged to join the fun by wearing masks.
