A global act taking place locally
Procession 2015: Was Wet, Wild, and Wonderful!
Say hey everyone,
Sad to say, but we are having to postpone the debut of the Beaux Arts Procession Fundraising Ball.
Unfortunately, we have just not been able gain any traction or gather any momentum with the notion of a Masquerade in May - whether it be in social buzz, ticket sales, sponsored food donations, or synergy around crew production.
Admittedly, it was not the best choice of weekends, and a Masquerade Dance, shuffled-in with a region-wide anticipation to be working outdoors and on route to summer vacations, may have been a bit of a reach for folks to re-boot with thoughts about a newly designed evening "in" to benefit the Procession.
Yet regardless of the reasons, we simply do not have the financial margin of error to lose money on a post-Procession production.
So we are officially postponing and setting our sights on dates for early October, perhaps in conjunction with Arts Walk on Saturday evening. And there is always the thought for an Illuminated Ball the first week in December.
So yes, we still need to do fundraisers. But it is equally essential, that we continue to generate creative endeavors that bring out a good rise in spirits we can all weave together. The way of our the world, is frequently, far too unkind. But we, as a vibrant and fair-minded set of people, have the great fortune to bring kindness into being. And so we should do so!
Thank you so much for all who rallied to the call to help with this production - we will gather again on the other side of summer. And in the meantime: fly your heart, tune your strings, float a river, and secure your sandals!
