Coronation Ball

Coronation Guest Form

2017-2018 Coronation Ball Information

Our Coronation Ball will be on December 9, 2017 at the New Orleans Hilton Riverside.  Click on this link in order to make your reservations  now https://aws.passkey.com/e/ 49069821   Doors open at 6:30 p.m.  Music will be provided (TBA) Remember the coronation is BYOB, with set ups provided.  Only small, collapsible ice chests will be permitted. 

 As in previous years, we will still enforce the following rule: 

  • All monies owed to the Krewe of Selene must be paid, in full, by November 16th in order to attend the Coronation Ball.  There will be no exceptions and we will be taking money during coronation weekend.

Your dues include you and your escort’s admission to the ball.  Each member that will be attending the coronation must return the mailed out postcard, with the name of your escort, to the P.O.Box before November 6, 2017.  Seats will be reserved for only those members indicating they will attend.  When you return the reservation card, stating you will attend and then you do not show up to the coronation you will be assessed a $100.00 fine.  In addition, if you fail to sign in at the entry door at coronation, we will have to assume you failed to show up and will be assessed the fine.  It is your duty to find an officer and sign in should you arrive after the doors have closed.

Again, only those members who have returned this card, confirming their attendance, will be admitted into the Coronation.  Please keep in mind that substitutions will not be permitted.  That is, should you not be able to attend and not cancel your reservation by November 24,2017, you may not send another couple in your place.

We hope you understand our reasoning behind this “fine”.  It is to prevent the Krewe from paying for empty seats that we have guaranteed payment to the Hilton, when we could have filled them with paying guests.

Please let your float lieutenant know who you want to be seated with.

Guest tickets are available for $100.00 per individual. Simply send a check and a piece of paper containing the name, address of your guest/s, and your float lieutenant’s name to the post office box. Upon receipt of this information, your guest will be added to the reservations and we will forward them information pertaining to the ball.

Also, don’t forget our annual Friday Night Pre-Coronation costume party.  This year we will be returning to The Attic at 701 Tchoupitoulas St.,New Orleans (formerly Lucy’s Retired Surfer Bar) on December 8, 20167 from 9:00 p.m. to 12:00 a.m. The costume theme is “ABC” ( Anything but Clothes)
