It’s a night of wonders and memories, and a moment to remember for the rest of your life.

Angela Butorac of Butorac Events says she wants to make this evening even more special for the students of Oxford High.

“I just think it’s going to be an absolutely magical evening.”

The event planner has been coordinating the Oxford Ball since 2015, but this year she’s offering her services and expertise at no cost.

Butorac is hosting a GoFundMe to raise $60,000 to cover expenses to create an enchanting experience for students.

“The goal is to try and get the kids to have a magical, spectacular, over-the-top evening where they don’t have to worry about, you know, a cost, so if we can do that if we all can pull themselves together and do that for the kids and those families, I think that would be wonderful,” Butorac said.
