Although Christmas is still on the horizon, it’s not to early to look towards New Year’s Eve plans and organizers with the 2014 Alberta Summer Games are hoping you’ll choose to celebrate with them at the New Year’s Eve Gala.
“It’s just a chance to get out and help support the community and have a great time and a safe time on New Year’s Eve,” said Bruce Daniels, publicity and media Chair for the Airdrie 2014 Alberta Summer Games.
The event, which will be held at the Airdrie Town and Country Centre, will feature dinner, dancing, a photo booth and a champagne toast at midnight. Doors open at 6 p.m. on Dec. 31, with dinner served at 7 p.m.
The evening is a chance to leave the kids at home, put on your dancing shoes and support the Airdrie 2014 Alberta Summer Games.
“It’ll be a good chance to support the community because the Games will be a huge event for Airdrie,” Daniels said, adding he anticipates about 3,200 athletes, along with their coaches and family members to descend on the city for the July 24 to July 27 event.
For $111.99, which includes the ticket price plus fees and taxes, for an individual ticket, partygoers will have access to the dinner, a fun money casino, dancing, the midnight champagne toast and a midnight buffet.
If you have a group of people attending, Daniels suggests opting for a table of eight for $877.95, which includes the ticket price plus fees and taxes. This includes everything involved in the individual tickets but also includes two bottles of wine for the table.
For those with dinner plans already set, party tickets are available for $56.49, which includes the ticket price plus fees and taxes, and includes the fun money casino, dancing, champagne toast and midnight buffet.
Party tickets allow for a 9 p.m. entrance to the celebration.
All proceeds from the event will go towards hosting the 2014 Alberta Summer Games.
The event will also feature door prizes including a chance to win WestJet tickets.
“We’d love to sell it out,” Daniels said.
