6th Annual White Wilson Little Black Dress PartyFORT WALTON BEACH, Fla. — April 2, 2015 — The White-Wilson Community Foundation will host the 6th Annual Little Black Dress Party, A Night Under the Big Top on Saturday, May 16. This year's event, chaired by Mike and Yvonne Freeman, will take place at the Sandestin Linkside Exhibition Hall and will feature circus performances, dinner, dancing and an auction.

The annual fundraiser was formed in 2010 to raise funds and awareness for preventive health care service for local underserved women. Since its inception, the event has raised over $165,000 for women's health initiatives.

In 2014, the Florida Department of Health Okaloosa County and the White-Wilson Community Foundation partnered together to double the number of underserved women receiving screenings and treatment with funds raised at the Little Black Dress Party. The WWCF hopes to continue to increase access to health care in Okaloosa, Walton and Santa Rosa Counties through the support of this year's event.

"Our family, like so many others, has been impacted by breast cancer and we understand the importance of preventive care in this fight," said Little Black Dress Party Honorary Chair Yvonne Freeman. "Access to health care services and treatment is something all women deserve. We are proud to be a part of this important cause and to help impact the lives of women in our community."

Over the years, the event has seen a variety of décor and themes. From a night in Paris to the Roaring 20s, the event stays fresh and engaging for its loyal attendees. This year, cocktail attire and dancing shoes is the recommended dress.

Individual tickets (for $90) and tables of 10 (for $850) are on sale now!
