One of the highlights of Mock Convention—the Presidential Gala—is upon us, so we’re giving you the scoop on everything you need to know before the big evening.

What: The Presidential Gala

Where: Doremus Gymnasium

When: 8:00 p.m. to midnight, 

November 14, 2015

The gala is a black tie event, which means tuxedos for men and long dresses for women. This year’s theme is "A Grand Old Party."

“This is a play on words from the Republican nickname of GOP and the fact that is hopefully going to be a grand party,” said senior Madison Smith, the Mock Con Events Chair. “So it is going to be a throwback, old traditional sort of feel.”

For those over 21, the gala will include a cash-only beer garden, which will serve both beer and wine.

Tickets are $45 for a single ticket, and $80 for a pair. Memorabilia--including t-shirts, stemless wine glasses, and highball whiskey glasses--will also be for sale. Tickets will be sold in commons a week prior to the gala.
