One local fraternity is getting their masks and beads ready for their masquerade ball this weekend, raising money to help deserving Texarkana-area high school students pay for to college.
The Theta Upsilon chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. is holding their annual masquerade ball on Saturday to benefit The Omega Scholarship Fund.

KSLA's Domonique Benn will host the event with the members of the fraternity.
