Bal De Nuit 2000


Gilmore, Joan, THE JOURNAL RECORD


Those two imaginative and creative ladies -- Tracey Brown and Seyan Hefner -- are co-chairing Bal de Nuit 2000, a gala sponsored by and benefiting Ballet Oklahoma. They chaired the first Bal de Nuit last year and the setting they created was so beautiful.

The theme this year will be the court of a French king in decor and revelry in the mode of the Three Musketeers. The black-tie dinner, dance and auction will be at Oklahoma City Golf and Country Club on Jan. 28 and begin with cocktails at 7:30 p.m., followed by dinner at 9 p.m. and dancing until midnight. Valet parking will be complimentary.

During dinner, the Classic Touch String Quartet will offer strains of Mozart, to be replaced for dancing by Superfreak, a dance and show band featuring members of The Nixons. Individual reservations are $125 per person. In the Underwriter category, $2,500 will buy you 10 seats at the party and attendance at a patron party at the home of Kent Potter the night before the gala. Benefactor category at $1,500 purchases six seats and attendance for those six at the patron party. Patron tickets are $250 per person, which also includes the patron party. Checks made out to Ballet Oklahoma may be mailed to 7421 N. Classen, Oklahoma City, 73116. Tickets also may be reserved by calling 843-9898.

Highlights of the auction include a crystal chandelier from On a Whim, crystal stemware from Bebe's and a laser eye surgery donated by Lasik Surgery, Dr. Hal D. Balyeat, Dean A. McGee Eye Institute. Original works of art donated by Rebecca Wheeler echo the Three Musketeers theme.

Underwriters, at this date, include American Fidelity Group, American Bank & Trust, Jeff and Cynthia Armstrong, Central Liquor, Dobson Communications, Main Street Parking (John Kennedy and Mike Samis), MBO Corp., Kent Potter, Richard R. Brown & Associates, Simons Petroleum and Van Hoose Construction.

Undecorated house

Dick Workman's grandfather, Oscar Perry Workman, built the house that will be the Oklahoma City Orchestra League's show house this year. Designated as 2000 Symphony Designers Show House (note the change from "Decorators' Show House"), the spacious mansion -- 5,000 to 6,000 square feet -- is in the Linwood Place Addition at 3205 NW 19th St. The architecture is inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright's designs. A preview of the undecorated house is scheduled from 6 until 8 p.m. Jan. 27. Reservations for the party, which also will feature beverages and hors d'oeuvres, are $15 and may be made by mailing checks to Sara Ann Scott, 1301 Cedar Ridge Road, Edmond, 73013. Additional information is available by calling the Orchestra League office at 848-6787.
