I want to thank EVERYONE who came out to this year's ball, as well as the incredible team of supporters & talent who
 come together year after year to make it all happen. In spite of some deep personal challenge, government shut down,
 & everything else facing us, we still pulled off a truly incredible night. I'm proud to host such a fantastic event, &
 honored by the talent, tenacity, & sheer dedication of all those involved.
   Pics are coming soon!

  In the meantime, we hope to see you again in November for The Black & White Ball (Black Friday: Nov. 29th).
 We've put together a great evening & things are coming together for another fantastic night.  So keep an eye on The
 Metro Underground for updates to this & other great events in the scene: TheMetroUnderground.com/MetroEvents

In loving memory of my father (A.R.D).
