Masquerade Ball and Silent Auction Event

Come one, come all, but come in disguise! Lafayette Square’s Halloween Masquerade Ball and Silent Auction will take place on Friday, October 28, from 7-10:30pm at SqWires Annex. This benefit event for the Lafayette Square Neighborhood Association will feature deliciously themed vittles, both savory and sweet, and an open bar with beer, wine, and a signature drink. DJ Micro (Marco Emerson) will spin tunes to keep dancers of all ages moving their feet. A highlight of the evening will be a performance by Christian the Magician, wowing guests with his humor and illusions.

Dress elegantly or foolishly – the choice is yours! – but "masQ" up! There will be prizes for those that are most creative, ridiculous, and extravagant. If you truly want to stay loyal to the theme, try not to disclose your identity until the big reveal at the end!

The silent auction will feature a variety of tempting treats including artwork, wine, experiences, home services, pampering baskets, and photography packages. Bid often to take home something wonderful and raise money for the wonderful Square!
