Chrysalis Ticket Options

How will the event run this year?We have continued to offer the option of supporting MSM by purchasing a ticket for Chrysalis by participating in person and virtually. We recognize that some people may feel more comfortable participating from the comfort of their own homes. We also know that there are generous supporters and alumnae who live outside of WNY and would like to contribute. Chrysalis 2023 on March 18th, 2023 will be a hybrid event.

Ticket Options:
Guests who purchase Chrysalis event tickets will have two options to choose from.
  1. Attend the Chrysalis Gala in person
  2. Have a Buffalo-themed CityMade basket shipped right to your house
For option 1: When you sign up to attend the Chrysalis Gala in person, you will receive a bidder number to participate in the online silent auction and the in-person live auction. Bidder numbers will be sent out in an email prior to the event and given out the day of, as well. Live auction item bidding is exclusive for only in-person attendees. Please be aware of this as it has changed from the past.

For option 2: Again, this year, we are partnering with CityMade to create a Buffalo-themed basket to be shipped right to your house. Instead of a meal, you will receive this basket full of goodies from Buffalo. This gives guests who live out of town or cannot attend the event on March 18th the opportunity to support MSM. Virtual attendees will also receive a bidder number to participate in the silent auction portion of the Gala. However, the live auction items will not be available for bidding for virtual attendees.

Thanks to our mobile bidding service it’s easy for anyone with a cell phone to participate from wherever they are. All guests who purchase a ticket will receive a bidder number to participate in auction bidding.
