Austin Landing is going to be mighty pink when the clock strikes midnight Monday morning.

That’s because the shopping, dining and entertainment complex located at 10050 Innovation Way in Miami Twp. will once again host a Times Square-inspired New Year’s Eve bash in support of The Pink Ribbon Girls. 

On Sunday, Dec. 31, starting at 8 p.m., Austin Landing will host a NYE bash featuring live music from popular local band Stranger, a free champagne toast for of-age guests, party favors, a graffiti wall, and a pink balloon release.

The event was moved to the Hilton Garden Inn at Austin Landing due to frigid weather expected on New Year’s Eve, according to Pink Ribbon Girls spokeswoman Sarah Gillenwater.

“It is a really awesome event,” Gillenwater said of NYE at Austin Landing.

Fireworks originally scheduled for the event have been canceled and will be launched at a future event next year, Gillenwater said.

General admission is $15 online in advance or $20 at the door

You could also opt for a VIP ticket for $60, which will get you  access to an enclosed, heated tent, where you can stay toasty all night. Tickets include admission, a private bar, party favors, a catered dinner and a drink ticket. 

Partial tent areas will be available for general admission attendees, but you’ll definitely want to dress for the weather. They’re expecting a huge turnout for this event so, to make room for the dance floor, chairs, backpacks, and coolers will NOT be permitted at this event.

The money raised stays here

Thanks to funds donated by individuals, corporate sponsors, Pink Truck sponsors, amazing third-party events, and fundraisers like the New Year’s Eve event at Austin Landing, Pink Ribbon Girls is able to provide healthy meals, housecleaning and transportation to patients and their families.

All proceeds from ticket and beverage sales will benefit the Pink Ribbon Girls’ programs in the Dayton area. 

Last year’s NYE event raised $30,000, with 100% of the proceeds from ticket and alcohol sales going to PRG.

“The cost of a ticket covers the cost of one meal for a woman going through cancer treatment,” Gillenwater said.
