April 12, 2013

The sixth annual Black Tie...Or Not...Benefit Ball will be held April 20, 2013 from 6 p.m.-12 a.m. at Sam's Town Casino. 

The BTON Ball is a fundraiser that supports the Shreveport-Bossier Rescue Mission, a local ministry that feeds, clothes, and provides shelter to homeless men, women, and children throughout Shreveport-Bossier. This annual event is organized by LSU Shreveport students from the Rotaract and Accounting Clubs.  Over the past five years, the BTON ball has raised $50,000 for the Shreveport-Bossier Rescue Mission.  

Tickets are available for purchase from Rotaract club members or, for the first time ever, online through Brown Paper Tickets. Reserved seats can be purchased for $60, with open seating tickets available at $40.  To buy tickets for the sixth annual Black Tie... Or Not...Ball contact Craig Causey at or visit the Brown Paper Tickets event page at  We encourage purchasing of tickets before April 15, 2013; however, tickets will be sold on the Brown Paper Tickets site until 48 hours before the event. 

Another great way to support the Shreveport-Bossier Rescue Mission and the BTON Ball is by purchasing a Caddywompuss 50/50 Reverse Raffle ticket.  Raffle tickets are $10 for a chance to earn half the pot!  You do not have to be in attendance to win.
