7 Reasons You’ll Definitely Want to Attend this Year’s Motionball Gala

April 10th’s motionball Gala has all the key makings of a must-attend young professional party.

Beyond an awesome crowd, you can expect a dash of celebrity, hot fashion, off the hook entertainment, and most importantly, a great cause to support.   

With proceeds going to help Special Olympics athletes realize their dreams of participating in the Special Olympics, this is your chance to do something great for charity while having more than a memorable evening.  

So in preparation for Calgary’s biggest young professional charity event, we’re giving you all the reasons you need to get excited for the motionball Shine Gala.

1. Flames Central
Undoubtedly one of the coolest venues in town, Flames Central boasts one of the best speaker systems going, along with multiples floors to explore and a massive dance floor to keep the party going all night long. 

Beyond the fun, once you add in a crowd of 1000+ young professionals, this just became the best networking opportunity of the year.

2. The Celebrity Element
This year’s host is Rick Campanelli, who many of us first encountered on MuchMusic. Since his breakout role as the channel’s VJ and co-host of Much On Demand, he’s gone on to become one of the country’s most recognizable TV personalities.

As one of ET Canada’s co-hosts, Campanelli is not only an accomplished professional but also a serious advocate for supporting charity. 

And let’s be real, who doesn’t want to party with ‘Rick The Temp’?

3. Host Bar
Did we mention drinks are free all evening?

Bringing in some of Calgary’s top mixologists, you can guarantee you’ll be ordering more than just vodka waters.

4. The Entertainment
Every great party needs a DJ, and this year you can look forward to dancing the night away to the stylin’ sounds of DJ Joe Swell.

Ladies, our piece of advice: look for comfortable heels, because you’ll have a hard time pulling yourself away from this dance party.

5. Shine
This year the gala’s theme is ‘Shine’, as in let’s shine a spotlight on our Special Olympics athletes and let’s add a little shine to the dress code.

Dressing to the nines is a big part of the fun with motionball, and this year you’re encouraged to add glitz, glamour, and bling to your outfit as you see fit. Get creative and make a bold statement.

6. Great Prizes
Between rubbing elbows with a fabulous crowd, busting a move, and enjoying free drinks, this is also your chance to win fantastic raffle prizes and bid on silent auction items.

7. The Athletes
While this party is sure to go down as one of the best you’ll attend this year, this is also your chance to celebrate this city’s Special Olympic athletes, many of whom will be in attendance. This is truly a wonderful cause and one that we’re proud to support.
