Snow Ball reflects elegant Hollywood|
|The task of transforming the Edison Club Events Center, a large banquet and entertainment venue in downtown Antigo, to a glamorous vintage Hollywood setting for Saturday’s Snow Ball is well underway.|
“The change is far greater this year,” Mary Ann Kamps, who is associated with the Langlade Area Arts organization sponsoring the wintertime fund-raiser, explained.
This year instead of the 700 yards of fabric used to drape the events center a year ago, the count has been increased 1,000 yards to 1,700, and even as it is being installed, there is a tremendous difference.
Langlade Area Arts is working toward construction of a small downtown performance theater and building that would have the space to host exhibitions, recitals and support areas for instruction.
Jeremy Doucette, an Antigonian who is based in New York, is connected both to the theater world and the arts organization, and provides much of the material used in the Edison Club transformation.
Kamps said he is the spark to the “Hollywood glamor” and elegant feel of the event because of his association with the professional theater.
The orchestra will be the River City Jazz Band, but Kamps added quickly that the name is not quite correct. The band will perform any music to meet the taste of the crowd and event.
“The band wants everybody to dance and have a good time,” she said.
The doors to the club open at 6 p.m. and the River City Jazz Band will present a combo to entertain until the big band takes the stage between 7:30 and 8 p.m.
Kamps said there is a silent auction and a number of fund-raising elements will be tucked into the event.
But none will interfere with what she said will be true Hollywood elegance.
Tickets are on sale at the Antigo Daily Journal, the Blue Awning, Neve’s Floors To Go and Furniture and at the door the evening of the event.
“We hope people turn out,” Kamps said, “this will be an elegant, good time.”
