Go on Sale at UW-Eau Claire Feb. 8

RELEASED: Jan. 25, 2008

Viennese Ball logoEAU CLAIRE — The 34th annual Viennese Ball will be presented Friday and Saturday, April 11-12, at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. The largest social event hosted annually by the university, the Viennese Ball is presented from 6:30 p.m. until 1 a.m. in Davies Center.

Ticket sales begin Friday, Feb. 8. Orders must be submitted via U.S. Mail. A printable ticket order form will go live online at 3 p.m. Feb. 8. If ticket requests exceed availability, orders will be returned.

Continuing a tradition of elegance and service, the Viennese Ball is a formal event that promotes positive university, community and international relations by expanding an awareness of the culture, history and music of Vienna, Austria. Modeled on the historic New Year's Eve Kaiser Ball in Vienna, the Viennese Ball transforms Davies Center into a mini-Vienna. In addition to dancing in the ballroom, guests can shop for flowers, crystal or chocolates, have a photograph taken as a personal souvenir, listen to music or enjoy a variety of Austrian and American cuisine.

Proceeds from the two-night event have thus far provided $1 million in music scholarships and international study awards for deserving UW-Eau Claire students.

The Viennese Ball is produced through the Activities and Programs office at UW-Eau Claire with the assistance of a 24-member committee and a large team of volunteers that works on a variety of setup tasks. Persons interested in volunteering for the Viennese Ball should call 715-836-4833.

Best Western Trail Lodge and Suites Eau Claire (715-838-9989) is the exclusive accommodations partner for the Viennese Ball. Please call for special rate packages.
