What is the Sneaker Ball?
The ASM Associate Board created the Sneaker Ball to support the work of After School Matters! Guests are invited to pair their coolest kicks with their best party outfit for this one-of-a-kind event. Though the first in-person Sneaker Ball was cancelled due to COVID-19 in May 2020, we are back with a virtual version adapted to bring the party straight to your home!
How will the event be hosted?
The 2021 Sneaker Ball will be hosted virtually via Zoom. Ticket purchasers will receive the link the week of the event, and a recording will be available afterward.
