About the Event

Are you looking for an excuse to get dressed up and fancy?

For some people, prom was a magical night full of fun memories, while for others struggling to fit in, it was a nightmare that was socially awkward or avoided altogether. 

Regardless of your experience with prom or any other formal event, let's leave history in the past! We now have a place to gather that has no gender identity or sexuality expectations. We want to share this fantastic night with you - your authentic self!!

Come as you are comfortable and join us for a 21+ Gayla with dinner, drinks, music, and dancing. All that, PLUS proceeds benefit a local non-profit organization!!

FAQ:

I'd love to sponsor this event!! How do I do this?

First of all thank you! 

If you'd like to sponsor, please email bolingbrook.pride@gmail.com and let us know. You can purchase an ad in our program in the sponsorships section on eventbrite or we can create a custom sponsor package if you like. 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

How will the money from ticket sales, silent auctions, and donations be used?

Bolingbrook Pride (official 501c3) is a completely volunteer-run organization and 100% of proceeds will go to help offset the costs for this event and our other events that benefit the suburban LGBTQ+ community. Most immediately, the proceeds will be used to help provide the main dishes at our 2nd Annual Friendsgiving in November. Anything left over will go towards providing resources to our local GSA programs and our annual picnic.

Can I purchase tickets at the door?

No. We need a complete head count by September 15th in order to inform the catering staff and finalize set up of the venue. Thank you for purchasing early!.

Yes, this event is 21 and over only. Your ID will be checked with your ticket at the door.
