The Winter Ball benefits the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation and is one of our

city’s premier events. The Foundation helps more than 66,000 South Texas children and

adults who suffer from debilitating digestive diseases.  For over 47 years,

successful research initiatives, studies, clinical trials, and other efforts supported by

CCFA, have resulted in new advances in the knowledge and understanding of Crohn’s

disease and ulcerative colitis.  Approximately 83 cents of every dollar raised

by CCFA goes directly to these critical research programs.
