The Statesboro Alumnae Chapter (SAC) of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., will celebrate the annual Peppermint Ball on Saturday, December 2, 2023, from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. at the Georgia Southern University (Statesboro campus) Russell Union Ballroom.  

The Peppermint Ball is Statesboro Alumnae’s signature charity fundraiser. The event provides financial support to graduating seniors from Bulloch, Candler, and Evans Counties. The theme for this year's extravaganza is 'A Crimson Wonderland.' This event will be a classy and fun-filled night featuring dinner, a silent auction, live music with Saxophonist Darryl Anderson, culminating with dancing the night away to music provided by DJ Dat Boi.

"Over the years, we have provided several scholarships to students in our three-county service area. It is always rewarding to do our part to provide them financial assistance with their college expenses," said Tanita McDowell, Statesboro Alumnae Chapter President. 

According to Mary Willis, Peppermint Ball Co-Chair, “Supporting this event gives the community at large an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of our young people.”
