3rd Annual No Show Ball


No Show Ball

Saturday, February 10th

The No Show Ball is a play on the truth that most of the fundraisers we participate in are events you actually have to attend. But on the day of the No Show Ball the event comes to you in the form of a dinner in a cooler bag dropped off at your front door.  The contents inside the cooler will include an entree, side, salad, bread, dessert, and bottle of wine. The cost of the cooler is $100.   

The cooler consists of:
Citrus Ginger Pork Tenderloin from Just In Thyme
Mac N Cheese from Fino's
Salad from Lucchesi's
Bread from Lisa's Lunchbox
4 Gourmet Brownie's from SmallCakes Cupcakery and Creamery
A bottle of wine from Cork's.  When ordering you will be able to select red or white wine.  

More information

If you live in Shelby County your cooler will be dropped at your front door on the 10th between 10:00 and 1:00.

If you live outside of Shelby County then you may pick up your No Show Ball Cooler on Saturday February 10th between 11:00 and 12:00 at CHICKASAW OAKS VILLAGE, 3092 Poplar Avenue, Memphis, TN 38111 (the mall that houses Pier 1 Imports and La Baguette).  Please park outside of the mall entrance that faces Benjamin L. Hooks Central Library.  Enter the door on the outside of the mall that is marked Forrest Spence Fund No Show Ball Cooler Pick-up.  The door is 2 doors down to the left from the mall entrance.

Just think that you won't have to deal with set menus, raised prices, and lots of crowds Valentines weekend but you also don't want to cook so this is a perfect avenue.  

Gifts for others

No Show Ball Coolers make a GREAT gift for others. You can purchase a cooler for someone else and we will deliver it to their front door with a tag that says its from you (unless you want it to be anonymous). 

Last year we were able to deliver 19 coolers to families who had children who were sick and admitted at Le Bonheur Children's Hospital. We would like to see that number increase this year. It is a true gift for these families to know the community cares for them.

We don't include the wine and instead have Sparkling Apple Cider. We deliver the cooler directly to their hospital room. If you would like to purchase a cooler for someone who has a child admitted to Le Bonheur, please click on the link below. Fill it out in this way so we know to deliver it to the hospital:
