The Austin Chapter of Jack & Jill of America, Inc. is hosting the 24th Biennial Beautillion Ball. Please add the following information to your Events on your website and radio stations.
The 24th Biennial Beautillion Ball culminates an intensive, seven-month program that provides mentoring, education, and social enrichment for college bound African-American males from the Greater Austin area.The purpose of the Beautillion Ball is to showcase the achievements of these young men and to reward them with scholarships and a technology package. These distinguished “Beaux” pay tribute to the community and to their mothers with a breathtaking waltz. The night is made even more enchanting by the lovely “Belle” who escorts each “Beaux”.
The entire Greater Austin community is invited to support these young men and their families! Proceeds from the Beautillion Ball support local and national 501(c)(3) charitable organizations in the Greater Austin community.
The Austin Chapter of Jack & Jill of America, Inc. was chartered in June 1953.

It is also our main fundraiser that has, over the past 35 years, raised funds for the United Negro College Fund (UNCF), the George Washington Carver Library & Museum, the Austin Children’s Museum, and the Jack & Jill Foundation.
