Snow Ball tickets now on sale

Tickets for the 2018 Snow Ball benefiting Norton Children’s Hospital are now on sale. The Nov. 17 gala benefits the Jennifer Lawrence Foundation Cardiac Intensive Care Unit (CICU) and will be held at the Omni Louisville Hotel.

The Snow Ball, now in its 28th year, features an upscale silent auction, five-course gourmet meal and dancing to the band Galaxy. Guests also will experience Omni hospitality.

The Jennifer Lawrence Foundation CICU was established in 2016 with a $2 million gift from the foundation. At the time of the initial gift, the foundation challenged the community to raise an additional $2 million to support construction of the unit. Funds raised through this year’s Snow Ball will go toward that initiative.

The CICU will feature specialized space for children recovering from heart procedures; open heart surgery, including heart transplant; heart failure; and other conditions requiring intensive care. The center is part of a large renovation currently underway at the hospital.

The Snow Ball is presented by Konica Minolta and will be Saturday, Nov. 17, 6 p.m. to midnight at the Omni Louisville Hotel. Tickets are $5,000 for a corporate sponsor table of 10 or $450 each, and will go on sale June 15. It is part of the Festival of Trees & Lights presented by Republic Bank. Sponsorship opportunities are available. To purchase tickets visit or call (502) 629-8061.
