Also, note that one $50 sponsorship will get you *two* tickets to main Chick Ball in Red Room and big room, entry for one to the Chick-A-BOOM VIP reception from 6 to 8 p.m. in Brew Pub; free food and drink from 6 to 8 p.m. at the reception; your name listed as a sponsor in all Chick Ball materials; and the label as "Chick"! In other words, it's an all-access pass! Not to mention, that $50 will help fight domestic abuse and save the lives of families.
