**Be sure to read the IMPORTANT TICKET-HOLDER INFORMATION on the site

NOTE: This is YOUR option if you know you’re coming to party with us and you wanna make yourself & everyone else who’s working to put this thing together SMILE.  


We have a special 1-hour-only deal for those of you who are ready to get the party started, and are planning to make it an early night.

Here’s how it works:

  • arrive between 9 and 10pm
  • wear purple — and the more purple items you wear, the more raffle tix you get!
  • pay $8 cash at the door

NOTE: This is YOUR option if you wanna meet new people, if you’re down to help us get the party started, and most importantly if you KNOW you can get there on time! 

3) TAKING MY CHANCES & hoping for the best 

If for some reason you decide not to purchase tickets in advance (aww…) and you don’t arrive by 10pm wearing purple… We’ll have tix at the door for $15. Just keep in mind that if there’s a line, the folks who purchased advanced tix will get priority

NOTE: This is YOUR option if you just gotta stay flexible that night… and hope for the best.

No matter which option you chose to get in, everyone will have the chance to buy RAFFLE tix to win some fun – mostly-purple – prizes!
