Icon Lounge NYE ball to benefit Make A Wish Foundation

Posted: Updated:

The countdown is on, we are just hours from the start of a brand new year. Celebrations will extend 'round the world. Right here at home, Downtown Sioux Falls is no exception.

One of Sioux Falls' biggest events is at the Icon Lounge and Event Hall where much of the money raised will go to a very worthy cause. It's the 5th annual Champagne Ball with a Masquerade theme, held for the first time at Icon Lounge.

More importantly, the money raised heads right to the Make A Wish Foundation.

Many of us know the Icon Lounge as one of the newest spots to hit downtown with modern flare, featuring the world's biggest iconic figures.

And tonight, almost a year in the planning is finally complete. Organizers are putting together the finishing touches on both the lounge and event hall so it's ready for New Years Eve.

"Having it here for their first New Years Eve was a risk on both of our parts but it's working out well as we suspected it to. We're excited about having it here," Organizer Kimberly Stockinger said. 

"It's a great thing for the community and for the Icon. We're so happy to do something great and be part of this masquerade ball. Couldn't be more thrilled," GM Michael McGreevy said. 18:48:02>

Monday afternoon, organizers said they have raised enough money to fund one child's wish with  Make A Wish and hope to have a few more by the end of the night.

If you'd like to attend the 5th Annual New Years Eve Masquerade Ball, featuring 'Kory and the Fireflies', information is below:

WHERE: Icon Lounge and Event Hall, 402 N Main Ave.

WHEN: New Years Eve, 8:00 p.m. - 12:30 a.m.

Tickets are $75/person, benefiting Make A Wish South Dakota. Prices include party favors, champagne toast, entertainment and hors d'oeuvres.

You can purchase and pick-up your ticket at the door, Monday night.
