Holly Ball 2021

Save the Date December 4, 2021

“We can’t always choose the music life plays for us, but we can choose how we dance to it.”

Join us for Holly Ball 2021 as we gather together to celebrate life, community and music! For the health, safety, and a superior guest experience, ALL Holly Ball guests will have reserved seats available to them for the entire evening throughout an expanded space. After complimentary wine, dinner, and a brief program, the Main Event Experience will come to life around you with dancing, entertainment, food, a quieter lounge area, surprises and more!

We also will offer free, virtual access to the program and music for those who are not able to join us in person.

Watch for more details coming soon.
