LSO plans fund-raising Mother’s Day Champagne Brunch, quilt and wine raffles

LAFAYETTE, Ind. — The Lafayette Symphony Orchestra will offer a Mother’s Day Champagne Brunch at 1 p.m. Sunday (May 11) to raise money for programming and education and outreach efforts. The LSO also will hold a raffle on a handmade quilt and baskets of wine valued at more than $1,000 each in conjunction with the event.

Tickets for adults are $25 for the outdoor event, which will be held at the 10-acre home of LSO supporters Cy and Pris Gerde, 8303 Tyler Road near Battle Ground. Tickets are $5 for children, who will sit in a supervised area. Rain date is Sunday, May 18. Only a few reservations slots are still available.

“Scrumptious breakfast casseroles, pancake bar, mid-afternoon mimosas and champagne are on the menu, and live music will be provided by the Wabash Valley Youth Symphony,” said Melissa Boeckman, general manager of the Lafayette Symphony. “Guests will learn a real Maypole Dance, and supervised activities for children also are on tap.”

During the event, the LSO will auction a handmade, one-of-a-kind quilt featuring 10 signature squares personally autographed by 2007-08 LSO guest artists and conductors. Surrounding the signatures are large and small stars in purple, blue, orange and gold batik fabrics. The prize includes a decorated wooden hanger for the quilt, which measures 45-by-60 inches. Tickets for the quilt raffle are $25 each.
In addition, a raffle will be held for three baskets of unique wine personally chosen from vineyards around the world — from South Africa to France, Italy and China. Each basket of the donated wine is valued at more than $1,000. Raffle tickets are $100 each, but only 100 tickets will be sold.

Launched in 1950 as a non-profit organization, the 70-person Lafayette Symphony Orchestra is focused on enriching the cultural life of the West Central Indiana community and 14 surrounding counties through excellence in orchestral music and educational experience.
