BAMG/NEG head honcho Rob Shanilec invited me to a party at Jennifer and Chris Sawyer’s house on Monday to kick off the promo blitz for the big event of the Northfield Arts Guild’s 50th Anniversary season, the Beaux Arts Ball, coming up on Dec. 19 at Carleton College’s Great Hall.
Rob is co-chair of the event, as he was for the last big ball, the 2005 Sesquicentennial Governors Ball (photo album here, 2007 blog post summary here)
The event will feature music by the Bend in the River Big Band and information about ballroom dancing lessons will soon be leaking out.
Dan Freeman was at the party with his undertaker face and tuxedo on. It’s not too early to contact Dan about a tuxedo for the event.
And you can now purchase tickets online for the Beaux Arts Ball. Don’t wait too long, tho. Only 500 will be sold.
See the album of 21 photos, the large slideshow, or this small slideshow:
