Who doesn’t like to get dressed up for an evening out? What if you could do that while getting the whole family involved AND helping Make-A-Wish Georgia at the same time? That’s what you can do at the Inaugural Lavishly Posh Royal Ball, on Nov. 16 at the Sacred Heart Cultural Center, 1301 Green Street in Augusta. The Artisan Marketplace, featuring at least a dozen local artists, bakers and more, opens at 4 p.m., with dinner and the show beginning at 5 p.m. Attire for the event is formal or Renaissance attire fit for royalty.

Special events include Queen Wisteria of Story Land, distinguished fairytale guests, a family fashion show and talent showcase, ballroom dancing, arts and crafts, swag bag for attendees, and a silent auction. As a special surprise, all princesses whom have attended the Royal Princess Tea Parties at the Lavishly Posh boutique will be honored and receive a special surprise.

All of the net proceeds from the event plus $10 from each ticket sold will go to benefit Make-A-Wish Georgia and help kids with critical illnesses have their wish come true.

The Lavish Tickets for the event, which include dinner and all special features, are $50 per adult, $40 for children 10 to 17 and $30 for children 3-9 years old. The Regal Ticket, which gets patrons in for the show, dancing and artisan marketplace entry only, is $25 per person. Families of four or more people are eligible for Lavish-ticket discounts.
