Join Gotham City's most eligible bachelor at an elegant Black & White Charity Ball in aid of Arkham Asylum, the city's most innovative treatment center. Vintage or modern evening dress in black, white, or shades of grey is admired but not required and 1930's through '60s costume is welcome.

Our inspiration is the "alternate" animated DC universe of Mr. Bruce Timm and colleagues and the live action television series "Gotham" - in which the characters dress in vintage styles, wear hats, drive stylish vintage cars, and even dance to vintage music, but have 21st century technology. Superheroes, villains, and civilians from every comic universe are welcome.

Our band is the wonderful Sara & Swingtime, guest-starring The Joker, better known as the amazing Lee Presson of Lee Presson & the Nails - a deadly combination of talents. The band will play a combination of classic Swing and Blues and beautiful vintage ballroom dance music, including a number of exquisite waltzes. If you plan to dance, be certain to wear shoes you can actually dance in. The moment the band strikes up, you will want to dance.

There will be a pre-ball dance lesson at 7 pm in vintage Fox Trot and survival Swing followed by formal dancing and mayhem from 8 pm to midnight.

To sustain us through this lively evening of dancing and mystery, there will be a no-host bar and complimentary light refreshments (potluck contributions to Alfred's kitchen are welcome).

With a scenario like this, what could possibly go wrong? Surely, Mr. Bruce Wayne and Inspector Gordon have everything under control!
