Where is the Masquerade Ball taking place? The masquerade ball will take place at The Prince George Ballroom where history meets luxury at Manhattan's premier event destination in the Flatiron District. Conveniently located between Fifth and Madison Avenues on 27th Street - and meticulously restored to its original Neo-Renaissance splendor - this landmark venue is the ideal place for our UNIS community to come together and celebrate. You will be able to dance and mingle with other guests in your finery and optional mask.
We chose to host our event at the Prince George Ballroom because it is owned and operated by Breaking Ground, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that provides affordable housing for homeless and low income New Yorkers. 100% of net proceeds from ballroom events support this mission.
What should I wear? Formal attire is encouraged. It's a Masquerade Ball so you can be as fancy as ball gowns, tuxedos, and national attire!
Is there assigned seating? There is no assigned seating. The party will be a cocktail-style reception with seating and small tables available throughout the venue.
What will I eat? A variety of passed hors d'oeuvres and themed buffets will be available, including gluten free, vegetarian and vegan options.
What does my ticket cost include? Ticket costs include food, beverages, and entertainment.
What is the Faculty/Staff Lottery? You can underwrite a UNIS faculty/staff member by selecting "Sponsor Faculty/Staff Ticket" and increments of $50 will be applied towards a lottery ticket for faculty/staff members. If you wish to sponsor a specific teacher, you may purchase the ticket for them -- put their name in as an Attendee and please inform them that you purchased their ticket so that they do not need to enter the lottery.
