Tickets are currently on sale for the seventh annual Bully Gras Ball to help raise funds to support the Starkville area’s volunteer emergency response organization.

A Mardi Gras celebration with a Mississippi State flair, the Bully Gras Ball is the largest annual fundraiser benefitting Oktibbeha-Starkville Emergency Response Volunteer Services (OSERVS), a non-profit agency that provides assistance to victims of residential fires and other disasters; offers training courses in CPR, First Aid and other life-saving techniques; and works to provide support to local emergency first responders when needed.

The 2017 Bully Gras Ball is set for 7:30 p.m. Jan. 27 at the Hilton Garden Inn in Starkville and will feature musical entertainment by Kannawermz. Dress is semi-formal to formal. Heavy hors d’oeuvres will be served.

As with the prior Bully Gras Balls, the 2017 event will also feature a Royal Court of dukes and duchesses, from which a king and queen will be crowned. An announcement of the 2017 Bully Gras Royal Court is forthcoming.

Tickets for the ball cost $50 per person. Tickets may be purchased from any OSERVS board member or by calling the office at (662) 384-2200 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday to Thursday and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday.
