Another Party Alert (Giveaway Ended): SportsBall Black-Tie Tennis Shoe Gala Is Saturday
There's only one party in Memphis where you're required to wear your most comfy shoes with your black-tie attire, and that's the annual SportsBall Black-Tie Tennis Shoe Gala.
I'm giving away a pair of tickets (worth $200) for the event – which is this Saturday night at Minglewood Hall – so keep reading to find out how to win.
** Giveaway ended: Congrats to "Ashley C." commenter who won. You can still buy tickets online here or at the door.**
The SportsBall is like prom night meets game night. Guys will be in their suits and ladies in their formal frocks, but everyone will be wearing sneakers. There will be interactive games, casino games, something called "jousting with a friend" and, naturally, a photo booth.
You can expect plenty of drinks and informal foods like popcorn and nachos, plus prizes, auctions, and eventually, dancing. Gary Parrish and Chris Vernon from 92.9 ESPN are the hosts of the evening. The event benefits Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Memphis, which pairs mentoring adults with children ages 6 through 18 to establish a positive, influential relationship with that child.
Tickets are $100 per person in advance, and $125 at the door (buy them here) but I have one pair to give away. (Giveaway Ended)
Here's how to win: Leave me a comment here telling me that you want to go and your name will be entered into the drawing to win the tickets. Bonus points if you include a link in your comment here (to Instagram, Twitter, FB, Flickr, anything) to a picture of the tennis shoes you'll be wearing. I'll do the drawing tomorrow (Wednesday, July 23) at noon and announce the winner then.
