Experience San Francisco's WILDEST Mardi Gras Masked Ball in the tradition of New Orleans with a San Francisco twist!
Founded in 2004, Krewe de Kinque is a social/charitable Mardi Gras club that raises awareness & funds for charities in need. This year we've pulled out all stops for "Big X Ball - A Decade of Decadence" to raise funds for the Transgender Law Center!
The action starts with a stellar VIP Reception at the gorgeous new event space at The Arc (1500 Howard at 11th) from 7-8pm on Saturday, Feb. 9. An open bar featuring Stoli cocktails, delicious New Orleans Buffet & lively music will get the party started for VIP Hosts & Sponsors, including a preview of the Silent Auction. (VIPs will have preferred seating, name in the program & take away Gift Bags; $75)
The General Admission tickets ($20 advance; $25 at door if available) include all the fun of the Masked Ball: DJ and Dancing, Grand Marshal Parade, Live Tableaux Show, Crowning of the King & Queen X, Silent Auction, Go Go Dancers, Beads & more! One performance alone features legendary drag queen Cockatielia & 20 dancers & musicians! The night will be a seamless mix of dance music & live performances, musicians, dancers, our Celebrity Grand Marshal, bead tossing & more!
Dress is festive from Black Tie & Masks, to fetish, Carnival & gender bending!
Sponsorships with generous benefits of prime tables of 5 or 10 & more are available online or by calling King Gary at (415) 867-5004c. Krewe de Kinque is underwriting the cost of the event so 100% of your ticket, sponsorship & auction proceeds will support the nonprofit Transgender Law Center.
