Barristers Ball!!!

Barristers Ball will be Feb. 26th from 8pm-12am.
Ticket prices will be $25 – SBA member; $35 – Non-SBA member; $45 – Day of ticket

The band will be The Vegabonds, and they will be playing from around 9 until midnight. The band is on youtube so be sure to look them up!

The event is “black tie optional” which means that it is perfectly fine if anyone wants to wear suits, short dresses, etc., instead of black tie (tuxes and long dresses). If you would like to rent a tux, Men’s Warehouse has offered law students $40 off a full tux rental. In order to take advantage of this offer, use our Law School group number: 6427081.

Wristbands are free for SBA Members, $5 for Non-SBA Members, or free with the donation of a toy to the Salvation Army’s Toy Drive.
