Ticket Charity Auctions

The Japan Society of New York

We’re excited to announce that we’re auctioning 4 tickets, 2 General Admission and 2 VIP, to benefit The Japan Society of New York’s Japan Earthquake Relief Fund! This charity was set up in reaction to the Great East Japan Earthquake that devastated the Tohoku region of Japan in 2011, and has broadened it’s scope over the past years to continue providing support to the survivors of earthquakes in Japan. 100% of the profits from both auctions will benefit The Japan Society, and we’re truly proud to support them as their cause is dear to our hearts. 💜

Tickets will begin at the cost they were originally sold at, and include extra features that were not part of the original tickets:

Bid increases are set to a minimum of USD $25, and our system allows proxy bidding which means you may put in the maximum bid you’re willing to place and the system will automatically outbid lower bids for you.

The bidding will officially begin on December 3, 2016 at 12:00 PM EST and conclude on December 17th, 2016 at 12:00 PM. The winning bidder is expected to pay within 48 hours of the auction’s conclusion or forfeit the tickets to the second highest bidder.

The auction will run on our sales portal: sign up for an account using an email that you check often so you receive messages if you’re outbid or you’re the auction winner, and once you’ve confirmed your account you can navigate to our auctions page. Happy bidding!

An Informative Post About Dancing

What’s a masquerade ball without dancing? 💙 We’ve been working closely with the conductor of the Sera Symphony orchestra to plan the evening’s festivities, and we’re excited to see you gliding across the ballroom on our special night with the masked partner of your dreams! Not only will we offer ways to scout out your perfect dance partner if you’re coming solo, we’ll also be offering dances of varying skill so that everyone can enjoy the dance floor, regardless of how much practice time you’ve put in.

Fill Your Dance Card

( Design Not Final )
( Design Not Final )

We will be providing dance cards at every table that are printed with an ordered list of each type of dance we will be offering throughout the evening so that you may schedule yourself with as many lucky dance partners as possible!

We will also be providing pins at each table that can signal to other guests that you are interested and looking for dance partners—a light hued ribbon to signify that you know how to lead, and a dark hued ribbon if you’re better at following. We hope that this will encourage people to find and make new friends!

A Dance For Everyone

We’d like to cover a wide range of different types of dancing so that everyone who wishes to join in can enjoy themselves without worrying about their skill level. We will be offering the following dance styles:

  • Waltz (slow)
  • Viennese Waltz (fast)
  • Tango
  • Foxtrot

All of these dances will be interspersed with several basic “slow dance” songs for those who want some time on the dance floor, gazing into their darling’s eyes and not worrying overly much about their footing.

Ballroom dancing not your style? No worries! When everyone has had their fill of waltzing, we’ll be lowering the house lights and our DJ will play the best Sailor Moon jams for everyone to party to at the end of the night!

Special Dances

Do you want the chance to be the star of the dance floor? We’re extremely excited to be offering four special auctioned dances that will let you and your partner have the room’s eyes on you as you take the empty floor to your choice of music from the series! These auctions will run on our Sales Portal from January 1st – January 15th, 2017. Winners of the auctions will have their names and song choice printed on all of the dance cards!

You and your partner will open our evening of dancing with any style of dance you prefer. You may pick any song from the series that you wish, and the orchestra will accommodate. A truly romantic opportunity!
