The Seattle Snow Ball ~ A Charity Gala

Come join us and party for a purpose at the inaugural Seattle Snow Ball ~ THE holiday gala to attend in the city!

The Seattle Snow Ball brings the local community together to raise funds for the Ball’s featured non-profits: Childhaven and The Pike Place Market Foundation. Proceeds will be used to purchase Christmas presents and necessities for neglected and abused children served by Childhaven, and Senior Citizens who are supported by the Market Foundation’s Senior Center and Food Bank.

Against the back-drop of the gorgeous, new Mercedes Benz Seattle showroom; party guests will be dressed to the nine’s and be entertained by Lance Randall (jazz pianist), Jen Q (aerialist), DJ Mike (Miked Up Productions); with a few other surprises in store.

There will be a Silent Auction, where you can bid on items from some of the most coveted restaurants, retailers and experiences in the City.

Dress to Impress! Attire is Formal or Semi-Formal (strictly enforced).

Your RSVP alone is not enough to attend. Get your tickets at:

Ticket Options:
*GENERAL ADMISSION ($35) ~ entrance to the Snow Ball, entertainment and no-host bar. Available until midnight 12/13/13
*VIP ($79) ~ (all of the above) + 2 drink tickets, heavy appetizer buffet & sweets, valet parking with covered entrance (so you don't get wet! gratuity not included).  SOLD OUT 12/11/13

(cash or credit, but cards will have additional processing fees). 

Bar will serve: beer, wine, bubbly and vodka cocktails only. Honest Tea and Talking Rain also available.

A few select Meetups have been invited to this event.  More people will be attending than what you see here. I will see if I can save a couple of tables where we can meet and mingle with other Meetup folks and use as a base to find the group. 

Guests are welcome!

Update 12/14/13:  Any last minute questions, post via the main Facebook event page, contact the organizer via­ or just wing it.  :)

Looking forward to seeing you at this most glamorous holiday charity gala in Seattle; and Party for a Purpose at the Seattle Snow Ball!

    I'm on my way over to help set up. I'm wearing my Tango dress - long gown, black crushed velvet and fringe bottom.
    FYI, another Meetup member, Kristin Prust, will be volunteering for Child Haven, working at the registration tables from 6-9. She can also help point you to the Meetup group.

    Hey Bev and Kim - looking forward to seeing you tonight!! Heard there's over 350 people attending with several Meetup people included! I will do my best to save of a table or two with some sort of Meetup marker. You can ask or look for me. At 6'0, probably 6'2 in heals with long hair, I'm rather hard to miss (see my photos). If I can post later what I'm wearing, I will, to help you find me better. Chances are it'll be a long gown. Yay, so excited!!! Off to get ready and will be offline all day. Any last minute questions, post via the Facebook link, contact the organizer via or just wing it. :)

      Looking forward to it - so thrilled to dress up! (seattle much more casual than Miami) I hope to get there at 7. I now have strawberry blonde hair, and will be wearing a navy blue sleeveless long gown (with subtle beading on the shoulders) - I'm about 5'9" in heels

    CALLING ALL MEN: Not sure what to wear, maybe want to make a statement! Men's Wearhouse is giving Seattle Snow Ball party goers $30 off a tuxedo rental (+ donating an additional $10 to the charities)! Go into any Men's Wearhouse and mention the Seattle Snow Ball to get your discount. LADIES: This is just another opportunity for you to go shopping and buy a pretty dress....where are you shopping for yours? Personally I'm wearing a custom made gown I call "My Tango Dress". You'll see why. ;)

    Remember - BUY TICKETS:

    We are under 3 weeks to the Snow Ball and tickets are selling away, and expected to go faster after Thanksgiving. I have my ticket, do you have yours? Don't wait too long, especially if you want a VIP ticket/valet parking, tickets for those are limited. Also if you can't attend and just want to donate, you can and it would be greatly appreciated:

    Yay! We have nearly 2 dozen people signed up for this event so far from the invited Meetups and it was just announced. And there will be more people there since this is beyond a Meetup event. Remember to get your tickets at:
