The Abilities Ball 2023

Fayetteville Public Library

Join your Northwest Arkansas iHeartRadio stations at The Abilities Ball coming up on March 11th!

Life Styles will host an all-new fundraiser, The Abilities Ball, at the Fayetteville Public Library Event Center on Saturday, March 11, from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. The event will celebrate the remarkable abilities of the people with intellectual and developmental disabilities Life Styles has served since its founding in Fayetteville in 1976.

“We’re thrilled to usher in this new era at Life Styles,” said John Newman, executive director at Life Styles. “Through this event, we aim to share a small dose of the inspiration and enthusiasm we encounter in our work every day. Our goal is to create an inclusive event that mirrors our mission in many important ways—through celebrating our clients, prioritizing fun, and bringing together people from all walks of life throughout our NWA community.”

The event will feature an uplifting performance by an ensemble of Life Styles clients, followed by upbeat funk, soul, and rock & roll courtesy of Fayetteville-favorite Funk Factory party band. Small plate dining, prepared by Ozark Catering, and a come-as-you-are dress code are designed to align with the evening’s welcoming spirit and casual attitude.

Sponsors and their guests will have access to a separate VIP Room for SEC-Tournament-watching and signature-cocktail-sampling (created by Koon’s Saloon). Both live and silent auctions will be conducted during the event.

Both tickets and sponsorships for The Abilities Ball may be purchased at:

Ticket prices are $50 for General Admission and $35 for Children 12 And Under. Life Styles clients and staff may purchase discounted tickets at $35 per person.
