    Be careful what you volunteer for!:lol:

    First thing to do when I get back in town- buy tickets and a mask, then work on the "getup". I am thinking Bdarg should wear a really flashy mask?:idontno:

    Each artist market participant will have a piece of their work available in the silent auction at the ball on Friday night, then you can go back on Saturday for the market and shop!

    This event is special because it benefits 3 important arts organizations that significantly contribute to our quality of life and wonderful community- the Cultural Arts Association, Sinfonia, and the Seaside Rep Theatre. Please support their year-round efforts by attending the ball, the artists' market, or both!:clap:

    10 reasons to attend the Beaux Arts Ball on Sept. 25th:

    1. It benefits the Cultural Arts Association, the Seaside Repertory Theatre, AND Sinfonia- 3 groups that bring beauty and richness to our community!

    2. Masks. So fun, so crazy. Buy one or make one to go with your outfit! Wear something that you might never wear anywhere else- cross a line- and be incognito with the mask!... Read More

    3. Speaking of outifts, I am hearing about some crazy ones.

    4. Little Malcolm and the Houserockers. Bring your dancing shoes (then take them off like you know you will). Note to Miss Kitty- there will be a rubboard on the stage.

    5. Silent auction that is nothing but art. Collectable arty art. Art by people you may or may not know, but will want to make it yours. It will be be an art-extravaganza!

    6. The Artists Market on Saturday will let you go back to the "scene of the crime" and shop while sober.

    7. Food - how does PF Chang's, Tommy Bahama, Mitchell's, Cantina Laredo, and Emerald Coast Coffee grab ya? Enough variety?

    8. The ticket is $44. Love the number 4.... Read More

    9. Dance, drink, and laugh with your friends- and make new ones! With the 3 arts organizations, this party is going to have a fun and interesting mix of people!

    10. Be a part of reviving the Beaux Arts tradition. Looking forward to seeing you all! And the venue at Grand Boulevard is magical.

    Bump da bump....

    We are getting down to the final preparations. I have seen the list/pictures of the art- beautiful and interesting!

    If you are not familiar with any of the 3 art groups involved in this party, please visit their websites! The Beaux Arts Ball will benefit the visual, musical, and theatre arts in our communities along the Emerald Coast.

    Costumes are optional!

    While your creativity through costume is welcomed, we want to let you know that you do not have to be dressed a costume to attend the event. Masks are a must, though! And can be purchased at any of the ticket outlets or at the event!

    Purchase tickets now at www.culturalartsassociation.com/beauxarts

    The beauty of this party is creativity- it is a costume event if you want to wear a costume. Wear whatever you want! I am wearing a crazy dress that is comfortable for dancing AND eating, no costume, but Bdarg and I are all about the mask. Miss Kitty and I had so much fun at Michael's- my mask idea changed 4 times, and hers will probably be one of the coolest and most fun masks....Bdarg's is interesting.

    Three local non-profits will benefit from this one event!:clap:

    Let me just say that Kitty's mask alone is worth the price of a ticket. Mask hall of fame material. You will have no words.
