The old sweetheart’s ball has been replaced and revamped into the Gala at Gatsby’s Ball.
Tickets for the March 6 Gala, sponsored by Student Government, are being sold in the cashier’s office in the A building for $35. The Gala is being held at Crystal Gardens in Southgate.
There will be dinner, dancing, and an open bar for those above the age of 21. MCCC student and former Student Government president Joshua Zarza will be hosting the event as the DJ.
If tickets are purchased prior to the event and reservations are made at Comfort Inn & Suites in Taylor, there will be a complimentary shuttle to and from the event.
“For the price, you are getting a whole lot and more,” said Cole McNew, Co-Chair of the Planning Committee for the Gala.
The ball has been held on campus in years past and last year a ball was not held at all.
This year, Student Government has spearheaded the ball with the goal of bringing a new twist to an old favorite.
Moving the Gala to an upscale ballroom in Southgate instead of on campus adds a feeling of sophistication to the ball.
