While a black-tie event typically signifies a classy affair, a polka-dot-tie affair is usually reserved for when a clown interviews for a job. Keep it classy with today’s Groupon for admission to the Red and Black Tie Affair from The Ladybug Project, which funds the advancement of education and healthcare in Africa, on Thursday, February 2 at 7 p.m. Choose between the following options:
- For $10, you get admission for one (a $20 value).
- For $17, you get admission for two (a $35 value).
Inside Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens, the Red and Black Tie Affair entertains attendees with refreshments, African dance and music, and a silent auction, with all funds going to aid the undereducated and ill in Africa. Wine and snacks will be served as dancers and musicians perform popular African dances. A silent auction offers stellar prizes, including an all-inclusive four-night stay in the Dominican Republic’s Punta Cana, shoes worn by Elton John, authentic West African clothing, and Jimmy Carter’s imaginary boyhood friend.
The Ladybug Foundation provides school supplies for underprivileged youngsters, medical supplies for small clinics in the thick of the HIV/AIDs pandemic, and scholarship assistance for aspiring African university students seeking higher education within the United States.
