2017 Ball: In the Groove

Over 350 guests, clad in 70's groovy attire, were transported back in time for an evening of Motown at its best. Women donned dresses and gowns with sparkling disco sequins, jumpsuits, and mini dresses with boots. Many of the men wearing black tie attire sported platform shoes, and ruffled collars--vintage Nik Nik shirts ruled the house. 

Silver Street Studios was transformed into a Motown Lounge and a dining room filled with reproductions of the Temptations many platinum and gold records. During cocktail hour, guests perused the silent auction items which included coveted trips such as a photo safari to Africa, New York, Costa Rica and The Virgin Islands.

The Temptations hit the stage and the guests moved onto the dance floor for some magical songs including “Just my Imagination,” “My Girl,” and “Papa Was a Rolling Stone.” VIP guests were ushered to a private Meet and Greet with the Temptations for photos. 

As the Ball wound-down, the Late Night Party started grooving as Kalkutta took to the DJ booth, packing the dance floor into the wee hours. 

The evening raised an excess of $500,000 in support of the Alley's comprehensive education programs, and maintained its title of "best party of the year."
