Masquerade Party to Raise Funds for Meth Kids


Thanks to the Grand Junction Rotary Club, people can have a ball while helping child victims of methamphetamine abuse.

Today the Rotary Club gave the Task Force a grant for ten–thousand dollars, but the big payoff could come this October when the service club hosts a masquerade ball, with proceeds going to the task force's Endangered Children Committee.

The Meth Task Force operates on donations, so the expected income from the ball can go a long way in creating "tool kits" for the children. Since many children of meth addicts arrive without clothes, school books and other items the Task
Force has created "tool kits" to handle those needs.

The ball will be held on October 28th. Tickets will go on sale later this summer. For more information call the Mesa County Drug Task Force Center.
