We’re giving away THREE pairs of tickets to this amazing event, so keep reading to see how you can win tickets to the Foundation Ball 2020.
Wait, What’s the Rotaract Club?
If you’ve confused the Rotaract Club for the Rotary Club, don’t worry–I did too. It’s actually an honest mistake. Both clubs are similar and very invested in the spirit and community of Birmingham. However, the Rotaract Club is for young professionals, from ages 20 to 35.
The Rotaract Club helps young men and women in Birmingham get involved with their city, network, and have fun while doing it.
In order to support their work throughout Birmingham, the Rotaract Club holds an annual fundraiser gala known as the Foundation Ball. This event is open to the public, so make sure to grab your tickets today!
Have a Grand Time at the Foundation Ball
- Location: The Visitor Center at Sloss Furnaces, 20 32nd St N, Birmingham, AL 35222
- Date: February 1, 2020
- Time: 7PM-11PM
If you’re in the mood for a classy affair, the Foundation Ball is the event for you. Since the theme of this year’s gala is the Roaring 20’s, grab your suspenders or flapper dress and get ready for a grand time, old chap.
All ticket holders get access to food, alcohol (sorry, 21+ only), live music and the chance to win prizes. Nationwide Coverage, a band with strong roots in 80s Rock and Motown, will regale you with music all night.
When you get hungry, find the mouthwatering hors d’oeuvres from Tre Luna Catering.
If you’d like a drink, try the signature cocktails or martini bar-free while they last. In addition, beer and wine will be available at the cash bar. All drinks at the bar will be free from 7PM to 9PM–but you will need to fork up some cash after 9.
The Best Part? Your Tickets Support Young People in Birmingham
