Five hundred community-minded guests are expected to “Fly Down” to the popular YWCA Greenwich Persimmon Ball on April 12, held at the Hyatt Regency Greenwich where the night’s theme will be Flying Down to Rio and tickets are still available.

A black-tie affair, the dinner dance will celebrate the good works of the YWCA and honor prominent Greenwich resident Terry Betteridge. This year, the ball will feature a gourmet banquet, dancing to the local band The Short Bus, a performance by Samba New York, a Caipirinha Bar and live and silent auctions.

“Thanks to our hard-working co-chairs, this will be a great event for a great cause,” said Adrianne Singer, YWCA president and CEO. “Proceeds from the evening will enable the YWCA to provide a wide range of free services to help victims of domestic violence, grant scholarships to our preschool, summer camps, after school and aquatic activities, and offer the community free racial justice and women’s leadership seminars and programs.”

At the auction, attendees can look forward to bidding on items such as a week’s stay at a luxurious, colonial waterfront home in Cartagena, Colombia; seven days in a sea-facing room at the Lagoon Beach Hotel in Cape Town, South Africa, including winery tours and a safari; a masters suite for six in Jackson Hole, Wyo.; soccer in Rio in an owner’s suite; merchandise from Betteridge Jewelers; a weekend at the Ocean House in watch Hill, R.I. with a Masserati from Miller Motors to get you there, and more.
