The Friends of Bulloch Inc. will host its 30th annual Magnolia Ball, to help preserve Roswell’s historic Bulloch Hall, from 6:30 p.m. until 11:30 p.m. June 13 at Dunwoody Country Club. About 225 to 250 people are expected to attend the gala, which will feature cocktails, dancing, dinner and live and silent auctions, said Pam Billingsley, a site coordinator and a Friends of Bulloch Inc. board member. “It’s one of the few formal ball-type events left in the area and it’s a big part of the community,” Billingsley said. “This is really very classy and, of course, it’s going for a good cause.” The Grapevine Band, based in Macon, will provide live oldies, Motown and rock ‘n’ roll music. Auction items include trips, local business gift certificates, jewelry, artwork and more. The nonprofit organization will recognize the 175th anniversary of the 1839 childhood home of President Theodore Roosevelt’s mother, Mittie Bulloch. The organization operates and works to preserve the heritage of the facility, which is available for regular tours. Funds will go toward the renovation of Orchard Hill, the area on the north side of the property and scholarships for children’s summer camps at Bulloch Hall, Billingsley said. The organization also plans to have an amphitheater built next to the pond for outdoor educational programs for children and adults. Proceeds from prior galas paid for the restoration of the service yard and building grounds, Billingsley said. Reservations are $150 per person and sponsorships are available. This year, guests may register by phone for an auction, preview items, give a donations or bid online. For information, call (770) 992-1731, ext. 2, or visit bit.ly/1Hx0jaw.
