MERRILLVILLE | The 12th annual Ambassadors’ Ball to benefit the programs of Edgewater Systems for Balance Living, a community mental health center serving residents throughout Northwest Indiana, will be held Friday at the Radisson Hotel at Star Plaza, 800 E. 81st St. The theme is “Speak Out. It Matters.”

The event will feature Edgewater President and CEO Dr. Danita Johnson Hughes, a recent inductee to the Northwest Indiana Business and Industry Hall of Fame. With 18 years at the helm, she will usher Edgewater Systems into its 40th year of making a difference in the Gary and Northwest Indiana community. Her message will focus on the importance of speaking out for those who suffer in silence and shame due to any of the many mental health issues that can afflict an individual and their families.

In addition, this year’s event will feature Bill Masterson Jr. as emcee. Masterson, former publisher of The Times Media Company, is currently vice president of BH Media Group’s Southwest group, which includes The Tulsa World.

Tickets are $125 each and $1,000 for a table of 10, and include an appetizer reception, dinner,  a silent auction and dancing to music by the Dan Hayes Orchestra. Call (219) 885-4264, ext. 2604 or email
