Frostiball! A Dancing & Social Winter Gala at the Overture Center for the Arts!

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.

Frostiball questions:

Q:  What to wear?

Answer:

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.

Q:  Entertainment?

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.

      Hi Elliott! Thank you for your interest in the 2015 Frostiball. The price for the 2015 event has increased to $125 per person for those of you who are interested. Unfortunately, I have prior commitments and will be unable to host this event in 2015. If you want to host this event yourself, please let us know. Have fun dancing the night away.

    Hi everyone! The fun will soon be here before you know it! Frostiball is this Saturday at 8:00 p.m. and this is an event where formal attire is required. A final reminder for attending this event is that you will need to purchase a $100 Frostiball ticket. Currently, It appears that we will have about 34 people attending according to the RSVPs on two meet-up sites. I would appreciate that if you are not attending to please update and change your RSVPs. Please look for me by the coat check area where we will gather before entering into the event. I will be holding a meet-up sign from 8:00 - 8:15 p.m. There will be no name tags and after 8:15 p.m. there will be no signs for this social “black-tie” event and you may have a difficult time finding us if you arrive later. So keep an eye on the time to join our group between 8:00-8:15 p.m. I am looking forward to seeing all of you there!

    Lori S.

    I noticed last year it was very hard to dance in floor length dresses, most women had nice cocktail dresses.
