What is it?
The Blue Tie Affair is the Kiel Colon Cancer’s annual sneaker-themed gala designed to raise awareness for colon cancer while allowing its participants to take part in a themed night out on the town. Get ready for a night full of fun – live band, open bar (including our drink of the night – the “Blue Knot”), a slew of Hors d’oeuvres, multiple Blackjack tables, Roulette tables, Craps setups all included! Lace Up, Participate and Experience an amazing night out on the town for a good cause…in sneakers!
Black Blue Tie ‘Optional’ + Sneakers – For men, “black tie optional” means you don’t have to go out and purchase a tuxedo for the event, but this does not mean you can simply wear anything of your choice. It is still necessary to wear a proper suit; not any sport jacket or a funky T-shirt. We do ask that you wear a nice blue tie – bow tie or neck tie. Oh, and leave the dress shoes at home; sneakers only! For women, you have a few more options. You can show up on our blue carpet in a long evening gown, a nice, knee-length cocktail dress or well-stitched dressy separates. Make sure you’re dressed in blue, and wear your sneakers too!
