Our annual Rhythm & Muse Guild Gala is going to be another grand event due to the many Guild members who are working hard on its success. The Gala has been moved to the beautiful East Room of the Country Club of Birmingham and will have a glamorous, more formal flair this year, with black tie optional. The Sounds of Music is our theme, and Martha Ann Doyal and her talented Decorations Committee will transform the room into a magical, musical space.
Kim Strickland, our Scholarship Audition Co-Chair, has chosen our honoree, William Taylor Davis, clarinet (2014 2nd place Winner-Stuart Mims Scholarship, Instrumental Category). William will be a graduate of the University of North Alabama with a degree in Music Education.
The evening will include a performance from William, an exciting Silent Auction and dancing to the music of Ray Reach and his band. A beautiful display of delicious small plate selections will be scattered about the room for our enjoyment. Anne Lamkin has done a marvelous job choosing the menu and working with the special events staff at the Club.
More than 40 Silent Auction items will be available for sale to the highest bidder. We have a great selection of items that will spark fierce competitive bidding so be sure to bring your checkbook or credit card. If you would like to contribute to the Silent Auction, please call or contact Marsha Drennen at 612-8544 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tickets to the event are $125 per person, $250 per couple, $500 for a Patron’s Couple and $1,000 for a table of 8. Invitations will be mailed after the holidays. Extra invitations will be available at the January meeting for those inviting guests. Table Captain lists are also being accepted at this time.
So please make plans to join us for the major fundraiser of the year on January 21st! See you there!
