brbt fundraiser

Items intended for Baton Rouge Ballet Theatre's canceled Dancin' at the Mansion fundraiser are now available through a virtual fundraiser.

Baton Rouge Ballet Theatre had to cancel its Dancin' at the Mansion fundraiser in the spring, so is now holding a virtual fundraiser on Aug. 30.

All of the silent auction items intended for the original event are now part of a one-day “Buy Now” sale, giving patrons the chance to buy at 10% off the listed value.

Multiple virtual events will accompany the auction sale with free yoga/stretch at 1:15 p.m. and Ballet for Beginners at 2:30 p.m. classes on Facebook Live.

The highlight of the day is the Virtual Speakeasy hosted by Tallulah Crafted Food and Wine Bar at 5 p.m. Join local mixologists as they lead happy hour guests in a craft cocktail lesson via a Zoom link. All of the ingredients for two cocktails and a cheese and charcuteries board will be provided, along with any tools needed. Pick up of beverage ingredients and food will begin at noon Aug. 28 and continue until 4 p.m. Aug. 30.

Tickets for the event are $40 at Facebook live events can be accessed at Baton Rouge Ballet’s Facebook page or at
