Ignition Fund’s Weird Science Ball

October 31 @ 8:00 pm November 1 @ 12:00 am 

| $50

On Friday, October 31 at 8:00pm, LAB member, Ignition Fund, welcomes attendees to the Weird Science Ball at the UM Life Science & Technology Park. Funds raised will be used to support youth leaders, artist collaboration and innovative solutions in the fight against sex trafficking and violence against children.

The UM Life Science & Technology Park is home to medical technology and research innovators which provides a unique tie-in to the Halloween fun lab-terror. As guests arrive, they can learn more about the Ignition Fund and other partners and sponsors as they are “processed” through the lab tunnels.

Once admitted to the Weird Science Ball, guests can enjoy top floor rooms with a view and minimally invasive “procedures”… all in the name of science and innovation. They can also interact with sets created by Sculptress Colleen Kelley, recreate their own experiments, enjoy the offerings of an open bar and food by Truly Tasteful Events, and dance to the music of DJs Andie Sweetswirl, former resident DJ of the Vagabond and DEE Ella who have generously donated their talent.

Tickets are $50.00 donation in advance and $75.00 at the door.
