Success! You're on the list.

The Every Child Matters Education Fund is hosting an inaugural ball exclusively for youngsters. The Ball seeks to “raise the visibility of children’s issues and to win new investments in their well-being.”

Eschewing dainty hors d’oeuvres and celebrated speakers, this Inaugural Ball will feature a Wii room, puppets, and “fun food.”

And like the panoply of other high-profile parties going on next week, spots are coveted and going fast. The event is invite-only, and there’s currently a waiting list. Sign up here.

This isn’t a black tie party, but the dress code does stipulates you dress “warm and in layers.”

Much to the chagrin of children who thought they’d have a grown up-free day to start their Webkinz lobby, adults gotta be there, too. As the FAQ tells us:

I can’t make it, can I drop my child off?

No – All children and teens must be accompanied by an adult.
