On Friday, Dec. 4th, Nutcracker Ball, presented by the Kansas City Ballet Guild, kicked off the holiday season at the beautiful Union Station. Guests started the night with a lively cocktail party complemented by delicious cuisine from Brancato’s Catering, decor by Trapp and Company, and crowd-pleasing entertainment with the Michael Beers Band and Kansas City Ballet. Before dancing the night away, Guild President Lisa Hickok honored Barbara Storm with the 2015 Pirouette Award for her commitment to the performing arts. Ballet Ball Chairman Siobhan McLaughlin Lesley finished the night off by thanking guests for their support.
It was a night to remember and we can hardly wait for next year’s!
