On Friday, Nov. 13, 2020, Independent Resources, Inc. (IRI) will hold its 17th Annual Disability Ball from 6 to 10 p.m. at the Chase Center on the Riverfront in Wilmington, Del. This event – the only one of its kind in the country – brings together many different disabled communities, not only to have a good time, but, perhaps, to create a once-in-a-lifetime experience.  Because many disabled people never had the opportunity to attend a high school prom or other formal event, the Disability Ball was created.

At the Ball, guests can enjoy some social time, sit-down dinner (served promptly at 6:30!) and dancing to the music of DJ Sky Brady.  There also is the crowning of a King and Queen, and a photographer, Martin B. Selby Sr., BenMar Images, to record the event.

Tickets for the Ball are $65 per person and must be purchased by Oct. 23.  No tickets will be sold after Oct. 23.

Tickets may be purchased by check (payable to Independent Resources), credit card (Visa, MasterCard or Discover) or money order.  No cash may be accepted.  Tickets will be mailed.
Tables can accommodate from seven to 10 guests based on seating requirements, e.g., number of wheelchairs and scooters, if applicable.

All guests who require special meals (vegetarian, dairy-free, gluten-free, etc.) or special meal preparations (pureed, mechanical soft, mechanical chopped) must check the appropriate box(es) on the registration form.  All requests for special meals must be made at least 72 hours prior to the event.

The Chase Center is located at 815 Justison St., Wilmington, DE 19801.
