News release from YLNI:
Tickets available for 7th Annual YLNI Masquerade Ball
Fireworks, music and dancing will take over Parkview Field on Saturday, December 31, 2011, as the Young Leaders of Northeast Indiana rings in the New Year with its popular Masquerade Ball.Â The 7th Annual YLNI Masquerade Ball will take place New Year’s Eve from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m. at the Parkview Field Suite Level Lounge, 1301 Ewing Street in downtown Fort Wayne.Â
Sponsors for the event include Barnes & Thornburg, Lake City Bank, Rothberg Logan & Warsco, OmniSource, Strahm Group, and Downtown Improvement District.
The YLNI Masquerade Ball is black tie-optional and will feature a dessert bar, as well as a cash bar. Since a masquerade ball just isn’t a masquerade ball without fun masks, your favorite mask is required. A grand prize will be awarded to the person who dons the best mask.Â Another of the event’s exciting offerings is the Suite Package, through which you would get your own suite, 10 tickets, two bottles of champagne, and suite service for alcohol or food.
The Masquerade Ball is one of the most popular events presented by YLNI, a group of young professionals whose aim is to engage the community and make a positive impact on the places in which they live and work. The mission of the 1,000-plus person network is to attract, develop and retain emerging leaders through community, professional and social engagement.Â
“Our Masquerade Ball is YLNI’s biggest social event of the year, and we are excited to continue the special tradition as we enter into 2012,” said Justin Clupper, vice president for the YLNI Social Committee. “This is our way of celebrating a year full of tremendous achievement, networking with one another, and enjoying our time together as we embark on a new adventure in the year to come.”
Tickets for the Masquerade Ball are available for purchase online for $35 for YLNI members and $40 forÂ non-members. The 10-ticket Suite Package is $500.Â Tickets, which will not be sold at the door, must be purchased online by Dec. 30. Attendees will receive a $5 discount for tickets purchased prior to Dec. 1. The event is open to attendees age 21 or older. Â
