Marina del Rey, CA 90292
New Price: $20.00 per person
Due to insufficient interest in holding our NYE Party at a Fraternity house and not be able to meet our absolute minimum RSVP's to pay for the venue, Randy and I have made arrangements to have the Marina Del Rey Hotel, provide a Waterfront Banquet Room for our "Black & White Ball" NYE Party.
The price is now ONLY $20. There will be Music, Dancing, Fireworks, and Complimentary Champagne at Midnight. I hope more members will now be able to take advantage of this offer.
Also, MDR Hotel is offering a $99 per room (not per person) rate for our members who do not want to drink and drive. If you share a room, it's only 1/2 that! UPDATE 12/18/08
As you all know, we decided to change the theme of our NYE party to a "Formal - Semi Formal" Black & White Ball
event. You do not have to dress in just Black or White - Just "Dress to Impress"Our new NYE Party location will be The Marina Del Rey Hotel. Any of you who were with us for the 4th of July Party know what a great location this is. The location is huge and can accommodate all of us with no problemThe admission price will be $20.
