At the start of 2015, any hint of a resurrection of the Youth Ball was nowhere to be seen.
Even so, a bunch of us got together to knuckle down on planning something epic for City Impact Youth to enjoy at SUMMIT this year. A few emails here, a few meetings there and BOOM – Wonder: The Ball was born.
We are now one week out from The Ball happening on July 11th and our people are hard at work to ensure all our 15+ and Young Adults have a memorable night, smack bang in the middle of SUMMIT.
The team are pretty excited for what’s going down so check the list to get in the know:
1. How much are tickets?
$25… pretty cheap huh? These can be purchased at The Ball booths on Sundays, Wednesdays or during SUMMIT and are also available online. Tickets go up to $30 on SUMMIT Wednesday so get in quick! No door sales are available, so make sure you get one before the 11th! And gents, if you’re taking a date, be a lad and buy her a ticket. The ball ticket covers entry, entertainment, and everyone’s favourite – food!
2.Who can come?
The Ball is open to anyone older than the good ol’ age of 15 + Young Adults. As San & Tan put it – “no twelvies allowed”. It isn’t too late to invite your friends from school, other churches, sports teams, music groups – whatever! The more, the better!
3.What to wear?
Most of us guys don’t really think ahead about what we are gonna wear, but apparently ladies are the opposite. Who would’ve thought? So, the awesome gals in our ball committee have gone to Pinterest (pinterest.com/hollyy_pockett/wonder-youth-ball-15/) to create a look book to spur some ideas of what YOU can wear. Check it out today and then drop by your local op-shop or favourite online store to grab something beaut for The Ball.
4. How long will it go for?
Come along from 7pm on the night and prepare your feet to dance until 11pm. Then again, we did get a noise control complaint at the last youth dance party at 9:20pm – so I guess we will have to play it by ear!
5. Prizes on the night?
Flip yes, there will be prizes! We will have your usual King and Queen of The Ball this year with the added categories of ‘Life of the Party’, ‘Cutest Couple’, and ‘Best Dressed’.
That’s it for now, but if you want to follow our final announcements, keep on our Instagram and Facebook accounts!
See you at SUMMIT! 4 days people!
