Update on Health and Safety Protocols 

To maximize everyone’s health and safety, all guests must show proof of full vaccination AND proof of a negative Covid-19 test (PCR or rapid antigen) performed at a testing center within 72 hours of the event.  We hope that in requiring BOTH a negative Covid test and vaccination we are doing everything we can to ensure a safe and fun evening for all as we support our scholarship needs.   

  • If you have tested positive within the last 90 days, you can provide proof of that IN LIEU of providing proof of a negative test within 72 hours of the ball. 
  • If you have a medical exemption from the vaccine, you can provide proof of that along with proof of negative test within 72 hrs of the ball. 
  • Please provide your proof of Covid vaccine by replying to me at this address or uploading it here

For your convenience, we have arranged to have Rapid Dx here at the J for testing on Thursday, February 24, from 10am-1pm.  You are welcome to test anywhere else you choose.  Test results can be emailed to or uploaded here.
