The International Professional Wrestling Hall of Fame invites supporters, friends and fans to attend its Inaugural Dinner on May 16, 2020, at 7:00 PM. The event will be held at the Red Lion Hotel, in the Stonehenge Ballroom, located in the heart of the Albany, NY shopping and entertainment district.
Join the IPWHF Board of Directors and Special Guests from the wrestling community for an evening of celebration as we officially launch our campaign to build a world-class Hall of Fame museum for professional wrestlers that will be located in New York State.
The Inaugural Dinner is the first major event hosted by the International Professional Wrestling Hall of Fame and the not-for-profit organization's signature fundraiser of the year. Guests will have the opportunity to meet the IPWHF officers in attendance as well as a number of notable wrestling stars who will share their support for the IPWHF and its mission.
Tickets are available for $60 each and can be purchased online at IPWHF.org/events. Sponsors, businesses, and other groups can purchase tables of eight (8) for $480, also available to order online, and includes a complimentary half-page advertisement in the commemorative event program. All tickets include dinner.
Guests will please note that the IPWHF Inaugural Dinner is a formal event with a business-formal dress code. Suit and tie is advised for gentlemen, and dresses, jackets or suits for ladies. Please, no casual attire, t-shirts, jeans, or sneakers.
