Valuable plaques offered at Snow Ball
space
Christian Yelich, J.J. Watt and Giannis Antetokounmpo will be among the celebrities presentat least in spiritwhen Langlade County Arts presents the annual Snow Ball gala Saturday.

The evening of music, dancing to the popular band Hip Pocket and light dining will run from 7 p.m. to midnight at Timber Haven in Polar. It is a fund-raiser to support the development of an arts center in Antigo.

The gala will include a silent auction featuring a range of great offerings, including a framed Milwaukee Brewer plaque featuring outfielder Christian Yelich, autographed by the National League most valuable player; framed Milwaukee Bucks plaque featuring future-NBA MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo, also signed by him; and a UW-Wisconsin football plaque featuring Badger greats Ron Dayne, Joe Thomas and J.J. Watt.

“We expect these to be very popular,” organizer Mary Ann Kamps said.

There are dozens of other silent action items as well, including a Coach bag, artwork by members of Antigo Visual Artists, and more.

Antigo native Jeremy C. Doucette, RWS & Associates live entertainment and events producer and international designer, based in New York City, has once again brought in the props to create a shimmering winter wonderland.

Doucette has designed award winning sets, lighting and costumes for over 500 productions worldwide, including plays, musicals, dance concerts, art installations, themed environments, and awards shows.

Some of those decorations, including set curtains from the “Dancing With the Stars,” TV production and walls created by the CBS Television production department, will be among the treasure trove of scenic materials that he has collected over the years and from the many corners of the earth in his professional travels.

The designer, who enlists family and friends to help in the very quick decorating job, said he and his crew will have over 750 man hours in the project by the time the lights go up Saturday night.

“We're creating a glamorous ballroom atmosphere out of a very nice, but simple hall,” Doucette said

He added that the Snow Ball is near and dear to him, even after years away from Antigo.

“I think it is very important to build a space in town where the arts groups can be under one roof,” he said, stressing that fund-raising account continues to grow and with a little push, perhaps from private donors, the project can become a reality sooner rather than later.

The vision is to create a cultural center for the community to enjoy and celebrate the lively arts. The center would unite the various local and established organizations of visual artists, musicians, theater, and dance by providing a performance area along with a gallery to offer the myriad of art works along with also providing classroom space for workshops to allow the continued growth of the arts.

Musical guest Hip Pocket is a powerful, high energy band, with a four piece blazing horn section and a rocking rhythm section led by local percussionist, Mike Fittante along with exceptional lead vocals by his brother Joe Fittante, on the keyboard and blending the other vocalists with close tight four part harmonies. The band plays a mix of top 40, R&B, Latin-fusion, jazz, pop, modern, and classic rock hits sure to bring everyone out to the dance floor.

During the evening, guests will be treated to a variety of sweet desserts, such as decadent, gourmet cupcakes and savory hors d'ourvres, along with a cash bar featuring signature cocktails.

The evening will also entail other surprises throughout the evening of great music and dance.

Advance tickets are $40 and are available at the Antigo Daily Journal and Neve's Floors to Go, Furniture & Mattress Gallery and Lakeside Market, The Timber Haven.

They will also be available at the door.
