    Oh how I would love to win some tickets to an evening affair filled with amazing like minded people who see the benefit to giving back to Trillium Family Services while kicking back with a cocktail! I can’t imagine a more splendid way to frolic and dine on the first day of our tenth month in twenty eleven. I raise my glass to these fine individuals who have taken their time to think beyond themselves and offer the public a chance to give back while throwing back. Much Success and Many Cheers! Hip-Hip Hooray!

  29. Micaela September 22, 2011 at 7:43 pm #

    I would love to go to an event that supports mental heath issues. I have struggled with depression for most of my life and so it would be great to be a part of something like this. Plus, I’ve never been to a ball and being a female, I’ve always fantasized about what it would be like to go to one. :)

  30. Cassie September 22, 2011 at 7:51 pm #

    Mental Health is a cause I believe strongly in, and this sounds like a great way to get people involved and supporting a worth cause. Plus it sounds like a ton of fun!

    This sounds like a great time! Pick me please!

  35. Kate September 22, 2011 at 8:33 pm #

    This event is going to be amazing! I have already pledged my support to the event and purchased a ticket. My friends are on the fence and I want to win tickets so 1) I won’t go alone and 2) to show them how awesome it is to support events like this!

  36. Tarri Christopher September 22, 2011 at 9:15 pm #

  40. [email protected] September 22, 2011 at 11:44 pm #

    my girlfriend’s birthday is a couple weeks after this, but i’m hopeful i can pass this off as her gift. (okay, i’ll have to give her a little something on the actual day-of, but damn if this wouldn’t be a killer precursor!)

  41. April September 23, 2011 at 12:44 am #

    I’ve been looking for an occasion to dress up and the food sounds amazing.

  42. Jess September 23, 2011 at 12:48 am #

  43. Erica September 23, 2011 at 1:12 am #

    I work in the food industry and with mental health awareness. This event would let me enjoy both my passions! This is worth taking a Saturday night off work!

  44. El September 23, 2011 at 8:06 am #

    Oh please! I would love to go and I’m job searching right now, so $75 is a lot. I’m in nonprofit work and would love to go meet people there, and, of course, enjoy great food and drinks!

  45. Logan M September 23, 2011 at 8:20 am #

  50. Jessica September 23, 2011 at 9:59 am #

    We used to have Scooter get shine from “The Rev” growing up in Memphis – it was very complicated. Shake out your spangles! It’s dancing time. If you need to practice before the event, check out the weekly sunday night swing dance at the Scottish Rite building downtown.

  51. Colleen September 23, 2011 at 10:27 am #

    The Bootleggers Ball, I’ve got stories from last year and would love to make more. Please and thank you!

  66. Robear September 25, 2011 at 4:30 pm #

  69. Charles Weller September 27, 2011 at 6:26 pm #

    Need to get my swing on. Hook a brotha up!

  70. BONNIE MELTZER September 29, 2011 at 6:22 pm #

    My mother taught me to Charleston when I was a kid. For her 80 birthday many years ago all of the daughters and granddaughters wore flapper dresses and feathers in our hair and danced it for her. It would be fun to go and dance the Charleston again.

  71. Bidnam Lee September 29, 2011 at 8:54 pm #

    I would love to go to this!

  72. Tim September 30, 2011 at 10:02 am #

  73. Wallace September 30, 2011 at 10:10 am #

    I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t end up with a flat tire at this gin mill.

    I’ll get an edge and check out the hotsy tostys.

    Daddy and his dame shall represent.
