Devil’s Ball

Devil’s Ball

14th June 2019, 7:30pm

This event has passed and is shown for archival purposes only.

Take a step back in time and onto the Auditorium Theatre’s National Historic Landmark stage for a night of devilishly good fun at the Auxiliary Board’s annual Devil’s Ball. The evening, inspired by the World’s Fair, features a premium open bar with beer, wine, and cocktails; heavy hors d’oeuvres featuring global cuisine; and dancing on the very stage that has welcomed artists and performers — including Prince, Aretha Franklin, the Bolshoi Ballet, and so many others — for 130 years!

Guests can also bid on the silent auction, participate in the wine raffle, and take in the history and beauty of the Auditorium on an exclusive tour. Save the date for this special evening filled with music and dancing under the dazzling glow of the Auditorium Theatre’s arches.

All proceeds from the event support the restoration and preservation of the National Historic Landmark Auditorium Theatre.

Devil’s Ball Tickets: $100 (available until Thursday, June 13 @ 5pm); Day-Of Devil’s Ball Tickets: $125 (starting Thursday, June 13 @ 5pm and at the Door).
