HAMMOND | The Community Center Development Corporation hosted its annual Black and White Ball to coincide with Black History Month activities in February.

Despite inclement weather, attendees forged their way to Dynasty Banquet Hall for an evening of elegance, food, fun and dancing late into the night. A silent auction was introduced for the first time to help raise funds for the Ophelia Steen Center.

CCDC President Carolyn Jackson presented awards to Lake County Commissioner Michael Repay, Hammond Public Library Director Rene Greenleaf, and Maywood Elementary School Principal Michael Nance. The recipients have all made contributions that have enhanced the lives of their peers by promoting growth on a social, educational and personal level.

Jackson also gave a passionate plea for support of the Ophelia Steen Center, stating that in spite of the troubles at the center with community involvement, the Ophelia Steen Center could survive and thrive "if we all work together as one body." Contributions can be made to: The Ophelia Steen Center, 5927 Columbia Ave., Hammond, IN 46324.
