PREPARING FOR THE GALA: BLACK TIE DEFINED

PREPARING FOR THE GALA: BLACK TIE DEFINED

By Lauren Sauser

Seattle is not known for hosting many “Black Tie” Galas. 

But if you are planning to attend one soon, FNS decided to create a guide for what is appropriate and fashionable to wear at a Black Tie function. Below are examples of gowns that would look fabulous on any Seattleite coming down Fourth Avenue.

Now remember, Black Tie is different than cocktail or formal. Black Tie calls for gowns and tuxedos or nice suites with a tie/bowtie.

Early Bird Tix Almost Gone + DJ Kazan + Hotel Deal Now Live

G’Day folks,

We have around 3 weeks to go before this spring’s hottest event – the 6th Annual Bonza Bash at the Grand Hyatt in Seattle! We figured it was time we started releasing a few more details about the event…

Early Bird Tickets Almost Sold Out

We have a hand full of early bird tickets remaining, but they’ll be all gone by the end of day today. Grab em before the price goes up!

Announcing: DJ Kazan

On Saturday May 21st, you won’t find DJ Kazan at his usual venues like Trinity, Last Supper Club, See Sound Lounge or Allure. No. Instead, he’ll be igniting the dance floor at the Bonza Bash!

Hotel Deal Now Live!

Why drive or cab when you can take the elevator home :)?  We have an exclusive deal for Bonza Bash attendees, just $175/night, a significant reduction from the Grand Hyatt’s standard rates. There are only a limited number of rooms at this price, so book yours online now to avoid disappointment.

 

For more details, visit the official website.

Cheers,
Brenton & Dave

 

 
 

This is a 21+ event. Tickets are on sale now for the early bird special price of $35 GAand $110 VIP. Check the official website for more details on what each ticket includes. The price will increase as the event gets closer.
