"Setting The Stage"
Saturday, May 5, 2012 @ Aria at The Jeune Lune
To Benefit The Basilica Landmark
The 5th Annual Emmanuel Masqueray Ball presents.."Setting The Stage." This theater of purpose will feature a kaleidoscope of visual and aural delights. Ethereal ambiance and celestial artists performing in a visually stunning venue will create an unforgettable evening to celebrate our beloved historic Landmark - The Basilica of Saint Mary. Proceeds benefit needed capital improvements for The Basilica and its Campus. As members of the cast, guests will browse fabulous silent auction items, dine on an exquisite three-course-meal, sip fine wine and sit in awe of their heavenly surroundings, from music in spine tingling harmony to entrancing angels and aerialists dangling from above, with many surprises in store throughout the evening. Black tie is encouraged.
Tickets can be purchased for the entire evening or just the "Encore." Beginning at 8:30 p.m., guests will enjoy our signature cocktail - The Showstopper along with Minneapolis' own The R Factor, who will take the stage and keep revelers dancing into the wee hours. At a reduced ticket price, Encore guests will still play a significant supporting role in the preservation and restoration of this historic Minneapolis Landmark. Please dress to impress.
