The Bison Ball: 2000s Edition is the U of M’s inaugural evening for alumni and friends 35 and under.

There’s also a pair of WestJet tickets up for grabs that will be given away to someone in attendance that evening.

Aside from great music and fun activities, there is also an amazing selection of gourmet food and beverage pairing station such as white wine and Brie, stout and salted caramel brownies and local craft beer and beef sliders.

Not only does $20 get you into an epic evening of fun, food and more, it also includes five food and drink pairings, plus prize draw tickets, too.

And since we know this’ll be a night to remember fondly, there will be special video and photo booths to help capture the fun.
