This wonderful fundraiser for the Lake Arrowhead Classical Ballet Company (which produces the excellent “Nutcracker” productions in December) , is always elegant and fun. This year’s fundraiser will be held at 6 p.m. on Saturday, September 13 at the lovely home of Lorna Polly. The charge for this elegant event is $65 per person. Because the Lake Arrowhead Classical Ballet Company is a 501c3 non-profit organization all donations are tax-deductible.
Guests should take their favorite wine and/or appetizer and then enjoy all the delicious assortment of Italian dishes and delicious, decadent desserts. The ballet board’s member, Jim Rex will be pouring wines he will select from various regions that will enhance the meal as well as the ambiance of this fundraiser. Like any good connoisseur he will be happy to discuss wines with interested guests and I’m sure, knowing him, he will have some great information and stories to pass along. Jim has a wonderful personality so he’s absolutely the right person to be “at the wine bar,” so to speak.
Due to limited seating reservations are necessary so call Marla at (626) 255-5329 or call Sharon at the Studio Boutique at (909) 336-9206.

Each year the Nutcracker performances thrill the audiences in November or December, whether they are permanent or part-time residents or ballet patrons who want to support this small but outstanding ballet company. If you haven’t been to a performance you are truly missing something wonderful. I know you’ll be amazed at the costumes, the sets, the dancers, the guest dancers (the Sugar Plum Fairy and the Cavalier). For a small dance company in a small area of the San Bernardino Mountains you leave the auditorium praising the dancers, the sets and the costumes. It really is a first-rate production and one you and your children will love. The wine, the delicious food and desserts will not only fill your stomach but knowing that you helped provide the funds for the excellent Nutcracker productions should make the upcoming holiday season very special.
