SIKESTON -- Things aren't always black and white -- but when they are, sometimes it's for a worthy cause.

The Black and White Masquerade, scheduled March 1 at the St. Francis Xavier Parish Center, is this year's dinner auction for the St. Francis Xavier Catholic School.

"The dinner auction is held every year to raise money for the school," said Angela Zorbas, chair for the event. "The whole goal is to raise money for the school which helps keep tuition down for students who attend here."
