Raise More Than Just a Glass.

The purpose of the Lakeland Margarita Ball is to make the Christmas season a little brighter for the underprivileged children in our community.

The Lakeland Margarita Ball is an outdoor annual event held at Lake Mirror every November. In addition to throwing a fun night out for the Lakeland area, the event aims to raise donations of gifts and cash which are distributed throughout the greater Lakeland area to local charity organizations. In addition to purchasing a ticket, guests are encouraged to bring an unwrapped gift (or cash donation) that they can drop off at the entry gate before enjoying a lively community event full of friends, great local food and of course, margaritas. Help raise more than a glass this holiday season for the children in our community.


How to Participate:


Donate to the Cause

The purpose of the Lakeland Margarita Ball has always been to put toys under the trees of those in need within our community. Without your support, some children would not have a Christmas. And that is where you come in. Your donation directly go towards putting toys in the hands of a child on Christmas morning.

You can donate or purchase tickets through:

  • Our Website!
  • A Lakeland Margarita Society Member

Buy a ticket & Bring a toy

Buy a ticket to participate in our annual Margarita Ball, and bring a toy ($15+ value) or donation to the event! Your donation helps bring smiles to the underprivileged children of our community each holiday year. Tickets purchased at the door are $80. Must be 21 to attend.
