5 Awesome Reasons to Attend the motionball Calgary Gala

Calgary young professionals, what are your plans for tonight? Whatever you have on your agenda, make sure you’re in attendance for the motionball Gala at Flames Central. This will undoubtedly be one of the most notable parties of the year; if you haven’t already purchased your ticket, here are five awesome reasons why you need to attend: 

You’re supporting an amazing cause. Calgarians are some of the most generous people when it comes to helping others and this is a heartwarming event that ensures that those with special needs realize their athletic dreams. Proceeds from motionball go straight to the Special Olympics Canada Foundation, which pays for training, volunteers and sports programs.

Host bar all night. It doesn’t matter how old you are or how much money you make, a host bar is hard to pass up. From 7:30pm onwards, your drinks are on motionball. Beyond doing a good deed and having a blast with your friends, you won’t have to worry about finding an outrageous bar receipt on Saturday morning. 

ILLFX. This dance group was founded by So You Think You Can Dance Canada finalists Edgar Gilber-Reyes, Joey Braunwarth, Cody Jaxon and Katherine Burrowes. This crew does everything from hip-hop to ballet to swing dance. ILLFX has wowed crowds at Smirnoff parties, the Calgary Zoo and has even stopped traffic in Inglewood with an espy fashion flash mob. You’ll want to see this performance. 

Skratch Bastid. Referred to as the “illest redhead on turntables,” Skratch Bastid is one of Canada’s top DJs and producers and he will be getting the crowd going with some party rock anthems. This guy does it all: hip-hop, funk, rock and disco.  You name it, he plays it.

Brighter. This year’s theme is ‘Brighter’, which means that everyone is encouraged to dress their best in bright colours and flashy accessories. Use this as the perfect opportunity to hit the town in style. You’ll also feel brighter for attending such a great event.

Don’t wait any longer – buy your ticket and get ready for a great night. See you at motionball.
