25th Annual GCCA Beaux Arts Ball:

Masked Ball & Creative Black Tie Event

In just a few months we will celebrate Spring at the 25th Annual Beaux Arts Ball at Hunter Mountain. Plan to join us on April 6, 2013 for what has been billed “THE party of the year!”

The Beaux Arts Ball is the Arts Council’s primary fund raising event, supporting the many diverse and varied programs we provide throughout the year. We continually strive to keep the arts alive and meaningful in our communities as well as draw attention to the important contribution of the arts in Greene County. We are proud of our accomplishments over the past 37 years.

 This year, as part of the festivities, we will honor Michel Goldberg with our Distinguished Service Award. Michel has been engaged in Arts Council activities since 1992. He joined GCCA’s Board of Directors in January 2004 and served as Vice President until his ‘retirement’ this past year. A consummate Board member and friend, graphic designer and visual artist, we are delighted to salute Michel with this award.

We added to the fun at last year’s event by designating it a masked ball. This creative twist was a grand success so we’re repeating it this year. Bring your own mask or buy one of the masterpieces made by GCCA artists and friends. Don your finery and join us at the Copper Tree Restaurant at Hunter Mountain.

The evening begins at 6:30 p.m. with the opening of the silent auction accompanied by fabulous hors d’oeuvres and an open bar. The silent auction features original works of arts and crafts donated by our talented artists, as well as wonderful items donated by area businesses. A special treat in the auction area is the outrageous and talented singer Lex Grey with her Naughty Cabaret.

 In the Main Ballroom, New York City’s top party band NITE-TIME will entice you onto the dance floor with an impressive repertoire from a wide variety of musical traditions and dance rhythms from 6:30 p.m. until midnight!

Dinner is served at 8 p.m. in a dining room magically transformed by decorating diva Jean Slutzky. The Restaurant at Hunter Mountain will tantalize your taste buds with a delectable haute cuisine menu, including a full entrée followed by an exquisite dessert.

So break out of the winter doldrums. Benefactor levels for tables of 10 range from DaVinci’s Diamond Dynasty at $10,000 to Cole’s Silver Society at $1,500. Individual benefactor levels range from Renoir’s Regal Realm at $500 to Rousseau’s Lair at $150. Benefactors take preference.

Call  us at 518-943-3400 to check seating availability and reserve your tickets. Tables seat 10 and seating is limited, so don’t delay! The Beaux Arts Ball is a fabulous night to remember!
