SixTwelve, a nonprofit community education center located in the Paseo Arts District of Oklahoma City, is happy to announce their Sixth Annual Mardi Gras Ball and the celebration of their first five years of business. The party will take place at the Tower Theatre OKC at 425 NW 23rd Street in Oklahoma City from 8:00 to 11:00 pm. Tickets are $100 per person or $175 per couple. Sponsorship opportunities are still available.
This theme for this year’s event is “Carnival”, as in the Rio Carnival, so bright, tropical colors and feathers will dominate the visual experience. Spaceface, a psych-pop band out of Memphis, Tennessee and our 2020 SixTwelve music residents will headline the entertainment. Brothers Griiin, a local dj duo, the drummers of the Flaming Lips and our 2019 SixTwelve music residents and Latin Mojo, an Oklahoma City band that will honor the Samba tradition at the opening of the party will also perform. During the ball, SixTwelve will hold a silent auction of local and Georgia art. Food will be provided by Picasso Cafe, flowers by A Date With Iris and drinks by Tower Theatre. This year the nonprofit will crown the parents of SixTwelve co-founder and Executive Director, Amy Young, Dr. James O. Young and Virginia Young, king and queen of the ball in honor of all of the support they have shown since Young purchased the SixTwelve building ten years ago.
