Lowell, MA (December 2015) – Made in Lowell is proud to present The Ball, this year’s keynote celebration of the New Year.
After the overwhelming success of events this year, Tobias Marx, CEO of Made in Lowell, believed it only right to give a final “Gatsby Style” farewell to 2015. “I think that after an incredible year like this all of us in the city need to end it with a bang. We need to celebrate all of the accomplishments of our community and ring in the New Year with good spirits because we have so much planned for 2016,” says Marx.
The event will truly be a grand ending to the year; as soon as guests arrive they will be immersed in a night of glamour, style and culture. Red carpets will guide them through the doors of Lowell’s Historic Cathedral, the former Jeanne D’Baptiste church on Merrimack Street. “We’re excited to introduce another amazing Lowell event location to our community,” said Marx. Live music and entertainment by the vibrant Angkor Dance Troupe, masters of traditional Cambodian dance, will create an energetic atmosphere.
Local artists, such as Tom Fiorelli and Daniel Mathieu from Western Avenue Studios, will have the opportunity to showcase their best work in our art exhibit, curated by Markus Haala from Western Avenue Press. The Ball will also feature a fashion exhibit by Humanity Boutique, a prestigious women’s fashion boutique in Lowell.
A delectable dessert buffet, catered by local eateries, will be available from 10:30 – 11:30 at night. And, of course, a champagne toast along with a live projection of the ball drop will occur at midnight – with dancing and celebrations continuing all night.
Longtime partner Merrimack Valley Magazine is sponsoring this event alongside Veloxity, who is powering the event with their innovative charging stations. Both The Lowell Sun and Howl Magazine are partnering with The Ball to provide media coverage.
The Ball begins at 8:30 p.m. for VIP ticket holders and 9:30 for General Admission. To purchase your tickets, specific ticket information, and all other inquiries, please visit the website www.madeinlowell.org/theball.
