First Annual Masquerade Ball

October 25, 2017

2017 Masquerade Ball

Last week, the Colts Booster Club hosted the first annual La Musique & Masqeruade Ball at the Hotel Julien in downtown Dubuque. This was the first time the Colts Booster Club had hosted the event, and the first time a masquerade ball was hosted in Dubuque. Music was provided by the Ken Killian Swingtet and featured jazz, swing, and big band selections from the 1920's to now. Guests were able to dance, take pictures in a photo booth, enjoy delicious hors d'oeuvres, and bid on a number of silent auction baskets. The final amount of money fundraised is still being calculated, but should be available soon!

Throughout the night, guests were able to vote for their favorite costumed attendee using their ticket stubs. There were many incredible costumes and masks at the event, but the final winner was Gail Hansen, who won with nearly 20 votes!

Plans are already being made for the 2018 Masquerade Ball, and no doubt it will be another wonderful evening of fun, dancing, and fundraising. A huge thank you! to all who contributed to making this event a success, and a special thanks to title sponsor Runde Auto Group. Thank you for being a part of the inaugural Masquerade Ball!

The Booster Club was formed on November 16, 1966, and it exists to support the programs of the Colts Youth Organization through local fundraising events, including the annual car wash and masquerade ball. You can learn more about the Colts Booster Club here.
