Charity Ball and #GivingTuesday

We're down to our last tickets to the 11th Annual Charity Ball, folks, so start snapping them up now before they're gone! For those of you who've been to previous Charity Balls, you'll know what a fantastic evening it is. Last year, the night of Charity Ball saw temperatures of 17 degrees, ice on the streets, cars skidding everywhere — and still over 800 partygoers flocked to the Leftbank Annex to help us celebrate Levé's 10th anniversary! Following that party, we donated $130,500 to our nine previous partner nonprofits.

This year, we are raising money and building awareness for our newest nonprofit partner, Incight, whose work to support, empower, and advocate for people with disabilities is making waves throughout our communities. They have a small staff, a small budget, and yet an outsized impact.

Today is a great day for you to help us do so. In case you're not aware, today is Giving Tuesday. For the uninitiated, Microsoft billionaire philanthropist Bill Gates explains it pretty concisely: "You may have heard of Black Friday and Cyber Monday. There's another day you might want to know about: Giving Tuesday. The idea is pretty straightforward. On the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, shoppers take a break from their gift-buying and donate what they can to charity."

Giving back (at any time of the year) is a pretty wonderful thing to do for a number of reasons, not least because you can help others and feel the satisfaction and unity that comes with having done so. But if you give back by buying your tickets to Charity Ball, there's a third major benefit: you can help others in your community, feel closer to them for having done so, AND get to go to an amazing party in the name of a good cause! Tickets are only $40 ($65 at the door), and get you unfettered access to an awesome night: champagne for all arrivals before 8 p.m., delicious cocktails, scrumptious brews and vines, a raffle, silent auction, and a thumping DJ 'til late.

No one said giving back to your community has to be a somber (or a sober) affair! Levé is proud to be Incight's partner, and Charity Ball's proceeds — including all ticket sales — go to Incight.
