Salisbury Symphony Guild to present Cocktail Cabaret
7-11 p.m. Jan. 12
The Salisbury Symphony Guild announces its brand-new fundraiser, Cocktail Cabaret. The event will be on Jan. 12 in Catawba’s Crystal Ballroom. Tickets are $100 each, including $2,000 in “play” money for the Casino and two drink tickets.
The Casino will be reminiscent of Las Vegas with tables for blackjack, craps, roulette, and poker. Nine professional dealers will coach those who are not familiar with the games’ rules.
Prizes will also be awarded at the end of the evening, including a week in North Myrtle Beach, four nights in Williamsburg, dinner with the Maestro, gift certificates to Salisbury Wine Shop and La Cava, two tickets to the Waterworks’ Oyster Roast, and an original painting by national award-winning artist James Taylor.
Meanwhile, attendees may purchase $25 tickets for a chance to win a three-night stay at the Wyndham Desert Blue in Las Vegas, air fare included.
Outstanding “cabaret” entertainment includes “dueling pianos” with Steve Stringer and John Stafford and the vocal talent of Destiny Stone. Destiny, due to graduate from Catawba College this month, has already released two albums of her own songs. Catch her before she “makes it big”!
Decor for the evening is designed to put you in the mood for an evening of personal fun and professional entertainment.
Area restaurants with international menus will provide the hors d’oeuvres, and wine and beer will be served by bartenders specially chosen to add to the mood of the evening.The Salisbury Symphony Guild invites you to share in the “fun” of “fundraising”!
Don’t leave your spot at the Cabaret/Casino to chance; circle Saturday, Jan. 12, 2019, and RSVP by Jan. 4 to salisburysymphony.org/guild/. Odds are, you’re already a winner!
