The public is invited to banish the mud season blues at the Red Cedar School's annual Rock 'n Roll Ball on Saturday, May 15, at the Vergennes Opera House. The doors open at 7 p.m.
The ball is an adults-only evening to benefit the school's scholarship fund, and will feature a live band, a cash bar, desserts and coffee, and a silent/live auction featuring exciting items from across Vermont and beyond.
The highlight of the ball is the high-octane Big Basin Band. This Mad River Valley group, fronted by lead singers Liz Levey and Colleen Mays, plays an eclectic mix ranging from jazzy ballads to full-throttle rock and roll that has won them a devoted following all over central Vermont.
The evening will also feature a live/silent auction featuring a host of exciting items, including two weeks in a luxury condo on Kauai; a week on Nantucket; a long weekend at a lakeside cottage in Qu bec; a full-year membership at Bristol Health and Fitness; ski passes at Bolton and Mad River; and a wide variety of gift certificates and items donated by restaurants and businesses throughout Addison and Chittenden counties.
Red Cedar School is an independent K-9 school in Bristol that has served area students for 21 years. The school provides a community in which authentic learning and independent thinking flourish.
Tickets for this unique, fun-filled evening are $20 each, or 2 for $35, and may be purchased at the door.
Details about the event, including items up for bid in the silent and live auctions, can be found at the school's, www.redcedarschool.org, or by calling the school at 453-5213.
