Frostiball! A Dancing and Social Winter Gala at the Overture Center for the Arts!
Come and join us for the 28th annual Frostiball event on February 1, 2014 at the Overture Center for the Arts.
This is a reminder that you will need to buy a Gala ticket to attend this event. It cost $100 and should be bought directly through DMI "prior" to the event. DMI's phone number is[masked] to purchase your ticket. Tickets will be mailed to you from DMI two weeks before the event. I am looking forward to seeing all of you there.
The fun begins as 8:00 PM. Frostiball is a black tie (optional) winter gala that raises money for Downtown Madison Inc. (DMI), which promotes economic development in the downtown Madison area. No date required, you can go solo and mix and mingle with other people. Please tell your friends and you are welcome to bring them too. They will need to purchase a ticket before they can dance the night away with us.
There is no need to be an expert dancer, this is similar to going to a high school prom; however, this one is for adults. Thus, no dance lessons required to attend to have fun. If you are not into dancing then feel free to enjoy the entertainment, social atmosphere, food and drinks.
You will see people from their 20s to their 70s. There is plenty of dancing, socializing, and entertainment to appeal to anyone. The evening will feature an array of delectable hors d’oeuvres, decadent desserts, complimentary champagne, wine, beer, soda and coffee drinks. All of this is included when you purchase your ticket online ($100 gala ticket) or by contacting DMI at[masked]-1332.
Meet your host, Lori S. by the coat check area between 8:00 - 8:15 PM. Remember to purchase your ticket in advance as they may or may not be sold at the door.
Q: What to wear?
Ladies - A floor length formal gown or a fancier cocktail dress.
Gentlemen - A tuxedo or a dark colored suit (black or charcoal grey). You do not have to rent a tux. If you have a dark colored suit, you will be just fine.
Q: How much are the Frostiball tickets and what is included in the price?
Answer: $100 for a gala ticket. This included access to entertainment on several levels of the Overture Center as well as all food and drinks throughout the evening. Hard or mixed drinks are on a cash bar basis. You may purchase tickets online at www.Frostiball.org or call DMI at[masked]-1332.
Answer: On the main floor you will see an orchestra playing all kinds of music from the 60s, 70s, 80s, and 90s, and most of the dancing is not ballroom style. Thus, no dance lessons needed to attend. Most people cut loose on the dance floor and simply have fun. There is usually a jazz band or piano music on the second floor for easy listening.
