The charity ball was sold out earlier than ever before this year. "570 seats, we don’t sell more, so that it doesn’t come at the expense of the dance floor", rita krebs explained in an interview with our portal. The 45. Rose ball of the caritas-circle association was the 31. And the last one she organized before her retirement and everything went like clockwork – even the snow didn’t start falling until sunday morning, when all the ball guests had long since returned home safe and sound.
"We take this as a sign that the rose ball has arrived here at the oberaurach center (OAZ)", caritas district chairman johannes simon was also delighted. The dancers even come from the lower main to the social ball of the caritas habberge, which was once initiated by klaus diedering in his function as district manager. The ball was moved to the OAZ when the franz-hofmann hall in knetzgau was closed down. In the first two years, the response was a little weaker, but the excellent danceable parquet floor quickly got around among the dance enthusiasts.
The celebrities (district administrator wilhelm schneider, host and mayor thomas sechser, member of the state parliament steffen vogel) were allowed to swarm out after the first rounds of dancing to sell the raffle tickets. The best dance music was provided by the klaus hormann band, which filled the dance floor with the very first waltz. The pelzer dance school put on a show with "salsa caliente".
Until 2 o’clock in the morning the guests enjoyed a successful dance evening, which at the same time builds an important foundation for the financing of the broadly diversified caritas work. Thanks were extended to all the volunteers, including the trossenfurt-tretzendorf fire department, who took care of the parking situation in front of the hall.
