88Nine’s Fall Ball
There’s no rule that says I must write about all our in-house festivities but it is what I’m doing. Last year, the Fall Ball was a blast and I didn’t even write about it so I thought I might this time around. Besides being a killer party, it’s also a sort of ‘Doors Open’ event where people’ll be able to kick it in our offices and other spaces in the building.
Our Fall Ball is also a fundraiser for the station, so there’s that, but really it’s our version of a house party. There’ll be a sort of mixer with food and drink to start the night that weather permitting, will be on our beautiful green roof. After cocktails, we have some live karaoke on the first floor featuring some brave volunteers singing some jams backed by a live band also to raise money for the station. The night ends with a DJ battle that as it stands right now is Me and Kenny Perez versus Jordan Lee and Dori Zori and we’ll be going cut for cut and keep the crowd hype. Guaranteed good times…
Friday at 6pm @ 88Nine’s home (220 E Pittsburgh St.)
