Saturday, Nov. 14; Seelbach Hotel
Whether off the rack or customized, sneakers are the attire of choice at the Special Olympics Kentucky Sneaker Ball.

With a new name and a return to a favorite location, the most stylish night of the Special Olympics Kentucky year will return on Saturday, Nov. 14.

To meet up with an initiative started two years ago when attendees were asked to wear athletic shoes as a sign of camaraderie with Special Olympics athletes, the annual Special Olympics Kentucky gala has been rebranded as The Sneaker Ball for 2015. The Sneaker Ball also returns to the Seelbach Hotel in Downtown Louisville this year.

The fun, festive and formal (or semi-formal) event begins with attendees walking the gold carpet and having their picture taken on their way to a cocktail hour that starts at 6:45 pm. The silent auction tables will also open at that time. A sit-down dinner and the event program begins at 7:45 with the live auction beginning at 8:30.

At 9 pm, the after party takes over with live music from Sneaker Ball favorites Caribou.

At the Sneaker Ball you can also rub elbows with Special Olympics athletes like Dallas.

The Sneaker Ball is a fun way to entertain clients or reward employees, and tables or tickets are available at levels that can fit any personal or corporate budget. Tables and sponsorships can be purchased on-line at wedoauctions.net/sneakerball.

Even if you can't join us at The Seelbach, you can still get involved in the fun. You can purchase a "Golden Ticket" online now for just $100. Only 150 will be sold and the winner will get the first choice of the live auctions items before it goes on the block. If not in attendance you will be able to designate a package when you purchase the ticket or as soon as the complete list is available.

You can also bid remotely on the silent auction items as soon as the auction goes live and throughout the evening of the event at wedoauctions.net/sneakerball.
