Omaha, Neb. (March 7, 2016) – All About Omaha’s annual flagship charity event is scheduled for April 15th at the Scoular Ballroom downtown, beginning at 6pm.  The annual event has historically brought in over $240,000 for local charities, and this year, the Literacy Center for the Midlands was named sole beneficiary.  Dinner will be served and refreshments will be available to all attendees. Entertainment IMG_1825will also be provided along with a silent auction and a presentation from Omaha residents who have truly benefited from all the Literacy Center has to offer.

The name Torchlight Ball was selected to convey the image of “passing the torch” of charitable giving in the Omaha community to a new generation eager to make a difference.

Since its inception in 2002, AAO’s Torchlight Ball has raised more than $240,000 for local non-profit organizations including Completely KIDS, Youth Emergency Services, Winners Circle, Court Appointed Special Advocates, Teddy Bear Hollow, the SHARING Clinics, Social Settlement, Hospice House of Omaha, Nebraska Foundation for Visually Impaired Children, Mosaic Community Development Center Creative Education Program, Childcare Associates, D.R.E.A.M, the Methodist Heidi Wilke SANE/SART Program, and Memories for Kids.
