Fifth Annual Masquerade Ball

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To know that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.
 -Robert Frost

Gather your friends, get dressed to impress, and come immerse yourself in Fire and Ice: Life Unchained’s Fifth Annual Masquerade Ball.

Overlooking the Schuykill River, with the city lights as a backdrop, our annual masquerade is held at the picturesque Vesper Boat Club. Enjoy a special night of music and dancing lead by our DJ, an open bar, tapas, dessert bar, photo booth, a tarot card reader and more.

    Yes! I'm going to answer for Pat and Ro since they're both busy, especially Ro. They have a list of names to check you off. So a confirmation number should be fine. Now back to my Omen movie :)

    If anyone wants to sell their ticket and can meet me in the burbs sometime this coming week, I'll buy your ticket. :)

    OMG soooo confused why was a message sent out that the event was sold out? :)

    February 6, 2013

    • Patrick D.

      Was there? I believe the message said it was close to selling out, not that it was sold out. There are less than 50 tickets available, but still some tickets left!

    Let me preface this by saying that, I totally, totally understand if this is not possible, but I figured I would try to ask. Is there any chance -- any chance at all -- that we might, possibly be willing to move this to the week after? Again, I totally expect the answer to be no, because everyone has probably already picked this date and set the calendar and venue. But I figure you never know until you ask. The PA & NJ bar exams are the immediately following week, so there's no chance in the world that I can go to this as is. if we were moving it to the first week of March, I would be able to go but again, I understand, I may have to wait until next year

    If I want to bring some friends that aren't a part of this club, can I?

    January 23, 2013

    • Justine

      Can someone come if they are under 21?

      January 29, 2013

    • Patrick D.

      If they're over 18. We card and mark at the door, and the bartender cards, as well. But they're welcome to non-alcoholic drinks! :)

    Would be nice to meet all of you, but I don't even have a dress shirt with me much less a suit.

  • Sherry C

    This is my first event with the group and I saw that checks should be made out to Life Unchained but where should I mail it to if I will not see anyone before the event? Or can it be paid at the door? Thanks so much.

    January 9, 2013

    • Patrick D.

      Sherry: Tickets can be bought online. The link is on the Facebook page. Let me know if the URL works at facebook.com/lifeunchain­ed.

      January 9, 2013

    • Sherry C

      Worked great. Thanks for the info. Looking forward to the event.

    Maybe a guest or two from out of town. I'll just spread the word.. :)

    Possibly a silly question, but are ballgowns and masks appropriate attire? Just checking to be sure! :)

    January 8, 2013

    • Patrick D.

      If you Google "Venetian Masquerade Mask," there are also a number of websites that sell handcrafted masks. Can't help with the gown question. :)

      Thank you everyone!!! :-) Now, how come when I searched google and Ebay for "masquerade ball gown", I kept getting the internet "oh, you want 'masquerade ball gown'? Well, here's a a lingerie store and a place you can get a mummy costume" results? Lol

    The link to buy tickets is now on this page, as well. I updated the content. Thanks, everyone!

    Hi everyone,

    Thanks so much for all the early RSVP's for the Masquerade!

    If you have the chance, if you could also RSVP on Facebook, we'd appreciate it! It helps us keep track of the actual total of attendees from both MeetUp, word of mouth, and elsewhere.

    Thanks so much, and we can't wait for the best party of the year. :) Here's the Facebook link:

    All my best,

      I can't seem to RSVP on fb with this link.

      January 9, 2013

    • Patrick D.

      Sherry: If you go to facebook.com/lifeunchain­ed, I posted the URL there under the first status update on that page. Does it work there?

    Does anyone know where we could RENT a masquerade ball gown costume? Or any nice/quality costume rental places in Philly or within an hour?

    Hi Patrick!
    What is Ro's email? The amazing gal in charge of the part event? As I'll probably try to give her the money for the event. When is the deadline to reserve spot for event? Some people I know might be interested in the event. Thanks!:)

    January 9, 2013

    • Patrick D.

      She is pretty great, isn't she? [masked]. I'd recommend getting a ticket sooner than later. We usually sell out by the last week. And sounds great! :) Your friends are definitely welcome, Jules!

    When is the last date to reserve a spot and when is the payment due? Can we give it one of the organizers? Thanks! ;)

    January 8, 2013

    • Patrick D.

      Jules: You can write a check to "Life Unchained" and give it to an organizer. That's fine. Thanks!

    Hi everyone! I'd REALLY love to go to this, but since I'm taking the PA and NJ bar exams (law) the very next week, I'm not sure I can. Is there a "standby" ticket option? Or is this only RSVP? Thanx!

    January 8, 2013

    • Patrick D.

      Emily, The event typically sells out, but there's a chance tickets might be available the week of. We won't know until then, though, unfortunately. If you e-mail me that week, I can let you know. Thanks!

      January 8, 2013

  • Bonnie L.

    Definitely. Masks and gowns are one of the best parts of the event!
