1940s White Christmas Ball

#1 Top Pick For the Holidays

-Huffington Post

Come celebrate the holidays with us! 

We are extremely excited to announce that there are some big developments, including a new theme and a complete creative re-imagining in the works with the 1940s White Christmas Ball! 

Unfortunately, due to the fallout of pandemic-related issues and restructuring, it’s become apparent that we are not going to be able to launch our plan this year.  As such, we will be postponing the 2022 Ball to Saturday, December 2nd, 2023. 

We are really going to miss you this Christmas, but we promise it will be worth the wait!  We can’t wait to share the big news with you! 

For those of you who would like to secure your tickets now (and at a discount!), we will have a small batch of pre-sale tickets available at the same price as last year!  ***If you have a credit for the Christmas Ball, you can redeem your credit at the link below as well!
