Six years ago, after the passing of her son Jacob, Tiffany Ball decided to carry on the joy and positivity that Jacob exhibited every day. Tiffany and her family began the Jacob Ball Wish Fund. Like the name suggests, their organization grants wishes for various groups and organizations in the Tri-State.

One way they raise money for the fund is with an annual show. You probably already know that Tiffany and her family have been a part of the Evansville theatre community for decades.

The 2019 Jacob Ball Wish Fund Show, called Next to Normal, will be performed on October 15th and 16th at AIS (Academy of Innovative Studies), also known as Old North High School. Showtime is 7:30pm and admission is free, although audience members are asked to make a donation to the fund.

Please take a minute to listen to our interview with Tiffany to learn more about the show and what the Wish Fund does for the community.
