If you’ve dreamed of attending an opulent ball in some far-away castle, you won’t have to travel halfway around the world to find it. After an overwhelmingly positive response from his first-year attendees, organizer Keith Boe will once again be hosting a one-of-a-kind masquerade ball that promises to be a night not soon forgotten.
This year’s ball will once again take place at the Greyhound Park Events Center in Post Falls on Saturday, October 28. Doors will open at 6pm with paparazzi snapping photos of your arrival. Once inside you won’t begin to recognize where you’ve landed. “The venue will morph every 45 minutes,” said Boe. “The lighting and textures will change seasons from spring to summer to autumn to winter every 45 minutes, and the edge walls of the venue will look out into infinity with scenes, stars and forest beyond the walls.”
Attendees will be treated to drinks and live performances before a gourmet sit-down dinner. After dinner is a live auction, live band, and a DJ takes over toward the end of the event. Proceeds from the party will go toward Children’s Village, a local nonprofit, which is a residential home for children who are in need of a safe haven from abuse, neglect or severe family crisis.
Touchdown Tuxedo in Post Falls is offering a special rate on tuxedo rentals for the ball and will give back 10 percent of sales to Children’s Village. Women are encouraged to find a gown at local supporters Affordable Elegance in Coeur d’Alene and Perfect Fit in Hayden. Don’t forget the most important accessory as well—the mask! Tickets must be purchased in advance and are only available online. For more information or to purchase your tickets, visit CdAMask.com.
