Legacy Ball promises a night to remember
A night of fun and fellowship is on the calendar as the Frankenmuth Community Foundation’s 5th Annual Legacy Ball is scheduled for Saturday, April 18. This year’s event will be held at Zehnder’s of Frankenmuth and will feature a gourmet dinner, live and silent auctions and entertainment by “hypnotic magicians” Jeff Jay and Donna Bright. In addition, a special update on the work of the Frankenmuth Community Foundation is also planned.
First held in 2011, the Legacy Ball is the signature fundraising event for the Frankenmuth Community Foundation and has raised over $140,000 to support the good works of the organization. Past events have featured speakers including Michigan State University Basketball Coach Tom Izzo, Detroit Tigers great Willie Horton and more.
This year’s entertainment will be Jeff Jay’s “Mind Power” hypnotic presentation featuring hilarious hypnosis and amazing magic. Guests will roar with laughter as their friends and neighbors dance like Michael Jackson and sing like Elvis. The audience is invited to join in and become part of the show – no one has ever regretted volunteering to join in the fun onstage. Jeff Jay and Donna Bright love to work with the audience to create a fun and exciting show that will be talked about for a long time!
“We’re excited about this year’s program,” explained Frankenmuth Community Foundation Executive Director Stephen List. “We always have a spectacular time at the Legacy Ball and this year will not disappoint. The committee is hard at work and invites everyone to come out and enjoy an evening of incredible food, friendship and fun – all for a good cause.”
Tickets for the 2015 Legacy Ball are $100 per person and will be available starting February 23 at the following locations: Frankenmuth Chamber of Commerce office, Tri-Star Trust Bank’s Frankenmuth office, Kroger and Frankenmuth City Hall. Tickets may also be purchased online with a credit card at the Foundation’s website, www.frankenmuthfoundation.org.
