Get Bent Presents The 2016 Snow Ball, Penticton's most elegant and most entertaining fundraising gala!

Be greeted with champagne at the door, enjoy an elegant 3 course dinner, wine during dinner, silent auction, a live pianist accompanying the beautiful voice of Yanti Sharples-Rowland, a dance party after awards, and the anticipated second season of "Penticton's Dancing Like the Stars".

5 teams of non-professional dancers, many with no experience, have been paired up, and assigned a choreographer to create a dance piece showcasing their personalities and to highlight and support local non-profits and charities.

Last year raised over $10,000. This year the event is aiming for $15,000. Proceeds from the event will benefit: SPCA, OSNS Child and Youth Development Centre, Get Bent Active Arts Society, The South Okanagan Children's Charity, Tanzania Humanitarian Project, Penticton & District Community Arts Council and Junior Chamber International (JCI).                     

The winners of the night will be chosen by all gala attendees, voting by secret ballot.

The response from the community has been amazing and thanks the event sponsors: The Penticton Lakeside Resort, SunFM EZ Rock, The Penticton Herald, Castanet Penticton, Upper Bench Winery and Creamery and Skaha Sound for their support and making this event possible.

We invite everyone who loves an elegant and entertaining night out, to dress up and cheer on the brave contestants that are dancing for the amazing organizations in our community.

The event will take place at The Penticton Lakeside Resort on Saturday, November 19th. Doors open at 6:00pm. Tickets are $85 and are now available at the Penticton Lakeside Resort and Get Bent Yoga and Dance.
