Why? Jump Back Ball 24 Kickoff!

Last night, Playhouse Square Partners kicked off the fun, excitement, and ticket sales in preparation for Jump Back Ball 24, happening on Saturday, February 28, 2015. The theme for the upcoming Jump Back Ball is Jump Back to the Future.

In keeping with the theme, there was a surprise for the attendees of the kickoff happy hour last night: a DeLorean parked just next to the Hofbrauhaus was available for photo ops and general ogling.

The DeLorean will also be on display at Jump Back Ball, so you will have another chance to see this fine machine up close and personal!

It was a packed house inside the Hofbrauhaus, with many people taking advantage of the early ticket discounts and grabbing their tickets before a sure-to-be sell out. There were also plenty of tasty appetizers (pretzels FTW), massive mugs of beer (I seriously had to have Matthew carry mine for awhile), and raffle prizes for those who donated personal care items to the Hunger Network of Greater Cleveland.

Matthew and I continued our ridiculous streak of good luck at Partners events by winning two tickets to this Friday’s Melissa Etheridge concert! The kickoff to Jump Back Ball always gets me excited for the main event. When you see how many people turn out to buy tickets and the amount of energy in the room, you know it’s only going to get bigger and better at Jump Back Ball itself.

So, if you missed the kickoff, but still want to get in on the Jump Back Ball fun, what can you do? Tickets are now on sale online. VIP admission is $250 and general admission is $180. Tickets sold out in 10 days last year, so don’t delay in purchasing!

If you already scored your tickets, but want to continue feeling the excitement up to the event, you can join the Jump Back Ball committee, which meets regularly to plan everything from decorations to activities to raffle for the event. You can also volunteer at any (or all) of the Shop Nights, at which all the decorations for Jump Back Ball are created. I was on the committee last year and I’ve attended Shop Nights for the last three years and both are a lot of fun!

And, of course, you can also join Playhouse Square Partners, which puts on Jump Back Ball, but does so much beyond just this annual party!

Did you get your Jump Back Ball tickets? Are you already getting excited to Jump Back to the Future?

***Disclosure: I am a member of the board of Playhouse Square Partners. Also, I was asked by Playhouse Square to help promote Jump Back Ball. I will receive one complimentary ticket to the event when I purchase a ticket of the same value. As always, all opinions are 100% my own.***
