Introducing Fête10 and The Party of the Decade!
I am thrilled to announce Fête10 – The Party of the Decade! On September 10, 2010, I invite you to share in an energetic evening celebrating the creativity and generosity of Austinites and the power of the arts in Central Texas. This year, Ballet Austin’s annual fundraising gala will light up the night sky with electric elegance, classic innovation and community collaboration… for an event like none other you’ve ever seen.
When we made the decision to hold a large part of this powerful event at the Seaholm Power Plant, we weren’t sure yet how it would be structured… I just knew that Austin needed to see a truly fantastic, one of a kind event in that incredible space before it would be no longer possible. The Fête10 Power Committee has had some phenomenal ideas that the Ballet Austin staff is helping us turn into reality. Their creativity and dedication to the event is unmatched and I could not be more excited about the direction the event is taking! I can promise you that we’ve got some seriously larger-than-life plans in store for our guests!! Now for the details…
Fête10 will kick-off in style at Ballet Austin with an exclusive and intimate dinner, A Dinner to Dazzle, for only 100 arts patrons and friends. Please note that A Dinner to Dazzle is almost sold out; so, please contact Ballet Austin as soon as possible to insure that you get a table. An unforgettable meal will be followed by a private performance – A Decade of Dance - for 250 in the AustinVentures StudioTheater. Ballet Austin will entertain and inspire with a showcase highlighting 10 years with Artistic Director Stephen Mills. Of course, those patrons already attending A Dinner to Dazzle will automatically gain entry to A Decade of Dance.
The Party of the Decade – and an anticipated 700+ guests! - will be the continuation of Fête10 at Austin’s infamous Seaholm Power Plant. Those wanting to attend only The Party of the Decade will have the opportunity to purchase individual tickets. Our friends at Neiman Marcus will provide a high fashion runway event –A Flash of Fashion - showcasing Carolina Herrera’s 2010 collection. The High Volt Dance Party will power up after the show, when the runway will be transformed into a dance floor through the close of the evening. There will be a special VIP area at Seaholm for A Dinner to Dazzle guests and event sponsors who will also receive VIP runway seating for the fashion show. Can you make it until 1am? I look forward to seeing you there!
