Tickets for the 16th annual Cupid's Ball went on sale 8 a.m. Saturday and Monica Harber, left, and her husband, Chad, right, made sure they would not miss out getting a ticket for their daughter, Ashton, a Sedalia Middle School student. They were first in line at the Heckart Science and Allied Health Center on the State Fair Community College campus, having waited at the doors since 4:40 a.m. Also in line are fellow early birds Cierra Spatz, buying a ticket for her daughter Tayler, and John Horstman, purchasing a ticket for his daughter, Aubrey. The Cupid's Ball, a Sedalia Women's Service League fundraising event, will again help fund the "clicker" interactive hardware for all the Sedalia School District grade schools. About $7,000 raised from last year's Ball went to this project. The goal is to bring all the grade schools up to parity in the clicker technology and give the kids exposure to this new classroom tool before they reach the middle school, said League member, Carol McMillin. The Cupid's Ball is 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m., Feb. 2 at Smith-Cotton High School. The theme is "Passport to Fashion".
