Swine Palace to Host Wine Tasting Fundraiser Event July 28th
Come join Bite and Booze for, well, Bite and Booze! Swine Palace, Baton Rouge’s premier professional Equity theatre company, invites the community to share a summer night of fine wines and hors d’oeuvres on the Reilly Theatre stage on Thursday, July 28, where 100 percent of the event’s proceeds will go to support Swine Palace mainstage productions. I had a blast at this event last year and would love to see even more people there this year! I recently played a role in a Swine Palace production called HEIST that was hosted at the LSU Museum of Art. It was such a great time for everyone. I'm thrilled to be able to support the Baton Rouge arts and entertainment companies when I can, so I'll definitely be attending this Wine Gala.
The event begins at 7 p.m. and will be held at the Reilly Theatre, located on Tower Drive on LSU's campus. A champagne reception will be held prior to the event at 6:30 p.m.
During the event, guests will have the opportunity to sample an assortment of 24 excellent champagne and wine varietals poured by licensed servers, all while supporting Swine Palace. There will also be a raffle to win an “instant wine cellar” – 25 bottles of summer’s finest wine varietals. Tickets for the raffle are $5 each. Special “mystery envelopes” will be on sale at the event as well, filled with wonderful gifts provided by some of Southeast Louisiana’s finest hotels, arts organizations, restaurants, spas and businesses.
Advance tickets for the event are $40 each. Tickets can also be purchased at the door for $50 each. Advance tickets can be purchased online at www.swinepalace.org. This event is open to guests 21 years of age or over, with age verification being enforced.
