A Princely Affair, Boca Ballet Theatre’s annual social event and fundraiser luncheon, kicks off the 2013-2014 season in a festive and fashionable way. Each year this elegant event attracts more than 400 people to the Great Hall at the Boca Raton Resort & Club for a memorable afternoon of dining, dance and fabulous prizes. On Sunday, November 10, the festivities will begin at noon with a mimosa social hour, followed by a delicious luncheon, spectacular dance performances, and incredible raffle prizes and silent auction items. A Princely Affair features professional guest artists along with Boca Ballet Theatre dancers. Past guest artists include New York City Ballet’s Principal dancers Ashley Bouder, Daniel Ulbricht, Megan Fairchild, Wendy Whelan, and more.
Boca Ballet Theatre is pleased to announce that Kim and Stephen Lazarus will serve as the Honorary Chairs of this year’s event. As devoted patrons of the arts, Mr. and Mrs. Lazarus have embraced Boca Ballet Theatre as an organization that they believe in. Mrs. Lazarus expresses that they are “honored and delighted to be able to support BBT as this year’s honorary chairs of the annual Princely Affair.
We have been extremely blessed to watch our daughter Sasha grow and flourish as she pursues her dancing dreams under the guidance and care of Dan and Jane and all the other wonderful teachers at BBT." Boca Ballet Theatre and the Princely Affair Chairperson, Carrie Gibbons, are grateful for the dedication and support of the Honorary Chairs.
