Beaux Arts Ball
The Robinson Ballet Company board of directors will present its elegant Beaux Arts Ball 7 p.m.-midnight Saturday, Oct. 14, in the newly renovated, historic Society Hall ballroom – sometimes referred to as Bangor’s best-kept secret – at 193 Exchange St.
The ballroom was built in 1892 and in the early 1900s hosted the Bangor Symphony and many other social events.
The ball will feature the music of Brian Catell and The Jump City Jazz Band, hors d’oeuvres and desserts by Montes International Catering, a cash bar by The Muddy Rudder and dancing until midnight.
WLBZ’s Donna Gormley and Matt Friedman will emcee the evening’s festivities. Tables of six to eight are available. Semi-formal attire is required.
The Beaux Arts Ball will also feature a dance presentation by Robinson Ballet and a demonstration.
Tickets are $50 each. For more information and tickets, call Helen Munsey at 866-3417.
