On Friday, April 24th, ChemClub will be hosting our annual Chemistry Department Formal at the Bram & Bluma Appel Salon in the Toronto Reference Library. This event is always a great time, with a catered dinner, live entertainment, open bar, and everyone dressed to the nines. This year our theme is “A Night Under the Stars” and our theme colours are dark blue, white, green, and silver. The event will begin at 6 PM for those with dinner tickets, and 9 PM for those with drink tickets.


There are two types of tickets available; dinner tickets for attendees who wish to enjoy theĀ meal, and drinks only tickets. Dinner tickets will be $50 for department members and $60 for guests, while drinks only tickets will be $25 for department members and $30 for guests. You do not need to purchase a drink ticket along with a meal ticket in order to obtain access to the open bar. Please bring government issued ID when purchasing your ticket. IDs must also be provided for guests.

Tickets will be sold at the following times, at the ChemClub store, for ~20 minutes:
