I am one of the promoters of an event in San Francisco called Hard French. Historically we have had an event in the wintertime called ‘The Winter Ball’ in Santa Cruz – and this year we are moving it to Reno at the Sands hotel (this Saturday and Sunday!) and would love to get the word out to locals about this LGBT dance party!
In the past this has been a hugely successful event – and I am hoping to jumpstart this event in Reno and bring it back and grow it each year! It has a few awesome components – I like to describe it as an adult prom, we have an evening formal dance party with the first half of the night dj’ing all vinyl soul 45’s (50s and 60s), a few drag performances, and the crowning of our King and Queen of the ball who each win $1000 to donate to a non profit of their choosing. Everyone at the event votes for the King and Queen. We are also having a pool party on Sunday afternoon — all this is happening at the Sands Resort in Reno.
In order to entice more folks in Reno to attend, especially folks from the LGBT community, we are offering a special to local residents – a $15 ticket (tickets are normally $25).
In order to receive the discount – you just need to enter the code hfrenopalz under ‘promotional codes’ on our ticketing page: https://hfwinterball2015.eventbrite.com/
Here are some other links you could pass on to folks to find out more about the event:
