Fort Worth Margarita Ball

PLEASE NOTE: Because of Texas Liquor Laws and Homeland Security you may be asked to provide your ID! Please make sure you bring it with you!! No one under 21 will be allowed to enter.

If you are entering with a Director's VIP Pass, you will be admitted at 6:30 p.m., Member VIP Passes enter at 7 p.m. and the doors open to the General Public at 7:30 p.m., even though your invitation says 8-midnight. Please be patient in the line waiting to get in. We are hoping that the new admission charge will not create a backlog of people but this is our first year for this, so we don't know what to anticipate yet. Thanks for your patience!! Remember that seating is limited. If you are new and will be looking for the meetup groups, they generally will be on the right side of the stage towards the front near the stage. I am not attending but my Director's VIP table will still be there for my guests, so look for my name on the centerpiece and you will have found the meetup groups! Have fun and take lots of pictures!! ~~ Liz Dujka

      I just sent an email to some of the locals up there to try to get you some, Dawn! I included you in that email. Thanks again for doing this. I know that Cheryl Fox got some a week or so ago from someone. She may have extras, as well.

    Typically, invitations are not available until sometime in October. A membership drive is held in September and the invitations are not printed until all of the director level memberships have been paid as those names are included on the invitations. When they are printed, the FWMS will make sure that the Meetup organizers of each group get plenty to disburse to their members.

    I will NOT be mailing out invitations this year as I have in the past years. Once they are printed they are available every Wednesday at the Margarita Society Happy Hours. The location of the HH is usually posted on the website.

    I hope you all have a fabulous time.

    I am not going to be hosting this event this year as I had hoped. I have started a new business and it is consuming more and more of my time and unfortunately I no longer have the time to commit. The Children's Charities of Fort Worth has made a change regarding admission so please refer to this link for more info. There will now be a $20 admission fee in addition to bringing a $30 toy OR you can just pay $50 at the door. This is a great charity and I hope that the change in admission fee will not deter your attendance. As you all know a party of this magnitude comes with a great expense to the organization and in this economy it is getting harder and harder to obtain sponsors so it has become necessary for a nominal fee to be collected to offset expenses. The minimum price for a toy has been reduced from $40 to $30 to help keep your individual cost down.

    As of this date, invitations have not been printed.
