On Saturday night, we set our phasers to fun as we blasted off to 2018: A Space Odyssey, the 27th annual Jump Back Ball.
From the amazing décor created by Playhouse Partners at Shop Nights to the many creative costumes that attendees wore, people embraced and celebrated the Space Odyssey theme.
General admission attendees could fuel up for an evening of dancing with a buffet dinner, also provided by The Driftwood Group. Oh, and the open bar helped fuel the dancing, too!
And dance we did! Faction kept the crowd moving and grooving on the KeyBank State Theatre stage.
We also had the chance to mingle with some familiar intergalactic visitors!
This year, attendees had the chance to compete in a fun and challenging online scavenger hunt that got our competitive sides showing! For those interested in games of chance, there were casino games, as well as raffles and silent auctions, all to benefit the Playhouse Square Foundation.
By the time we reached the lobby to party late-night style with Billy Likes Soda and munch on eats like tacos, tots, and hot pretzels, everyone agreed that Jump Back Ball 27 was an out-of-this world party!
For us, this was our seventh Jump Back Ball, and my favorite part was being able to blend friends who have been to many JBBs…
…with friends who were brand new to this party and see everyone have such a blast!
As co-chair of Playhouse Square Partners, I’m also so proud of and grateful for the hard work of our event co-chairs, Chris and Kate, and the entire Jump Back Ball committee, as well as the Playhouse Square staff and Red Coats who supported the evening and made it one of the best Jump Back Balls we’ve had!
Mark your calendars for the last Saturday in February 2019, because while JBB28 has big shoes to fill, I have no doubt it will!
