Monte Carlo affair to raise money for Arts Council
Placeholder Image

For one night only, The Arts Council will transform its headquarters in Gainesville into the gambling mecca of Monte Carlo with the feel of a James Bond film.

The metamorphosis into a French atmosphere is meant to set the scene for the Arts Council’s annual fundraiser. And those attending the event are encouraged to don his or her best James Bond-style attire with black tie being an option.

The evening will feature a chunk of fun vignettes of well-heeled villains, mega-casinos games, live entertainment, delicacies of the liquid and solid kinds and packages for silent and live auction. Several cars will be on display and some visitors will have the chance to win a new automobile.

Attendees will also be able to show off their best dance moves on the floor.

The Monte Carlo Affair will be at 6:30 p.m. April 18 at The Arts Council Smithgall Arts Center. Tickets are $125 per couple; $75 per person; $1,000 for a sponsor table of eight.

The money raised will allow the organization to enhance, educate and expand public interest in the arts throughout Northeast Georgia.
