(STOCKTON, NJ)-- Roxey Ballet Company invites the community to its annual spring fundraiser at the historic Prallsville Mills in Stockton, New Jersey on Friday, April 13 from 7:00pm to 10:00pm. Tickets are available online at RoxeyBallet.org for $95.00 per person. All proceeds support Roxey Ballet’s educational programs.
“We’re enjoying planning this fundraiser with a sophisticated jungle theme in honor of Roxey Ballet’s Mowgli, A Jungle Book Ballet coming up later this spring. Bringing the community together through a sense of purpose has been very rewarding,” explains event co-chair Melissa Dannenfelser of Flemington, New Jersey.
In keeping with the whimsical theme, Roxey Ballet’s professional dancers greet guests in colorful animal costumes. Attendees delight in “wild” signature cocktails, and plentiful hors d’oeuvres and desserts.
According to the Roxey Ballet event co-chair Sabrina Liddell of New Hope, Pennsylvania: “A highlight of the evening is a silent auction featuring a painting experience with noted artist Tony LaSalle and the opportunity to create your own ice cream flavor with O Wow Cow Creamery.” Other auction items include gift cards for Big Red Pedal Tours of Philadelphia, Flemington Ice Rink and Dinner for Two at Lambertville Station.
“It’s always a fun night as we return to our original home at the Prallsville Mill to celebrate all we’ve accomplished over the last 23 years, and all that we aim to do in the future,” says Mark Roxey, Founding Artistic Director. “What many people don’t realize is how much funding and support we donate back to the surrounding community in the form of educational programs. Fundraising events are vital to our mission.”
