“Please talk it up,” she said. “Try to get all your friends to come.”
The event is the museum’s most lucrative fundraiser. Because it will be on March 15 this year, the theme is “The Ides of March.” The format will be the same as last year with the Evansville swing band the Temple Airs playing music from 6:30 to 10 p.m. at the park’s William T. Breathitt Convention Center. Tickets to this portion of the evening cost $150 and includes dinner provided by Lake Barkley’s cooking staff.
The second portion of the evening will start at 10 p.m. with the 1960s cover band Cat Daddy. This part will cost $50 a couple. Lisowsky said the band was a big hit last year. They will play until 1 p.m.
Lisowsky told The Cadiz Record a couple of weeks ago that the Temple Airs have played every year since the event started. They formed for the sole purpose of playing at fundraisers for nonprofit organizations. The museum only has to pay for their bus, she said. Lisowsky said the event is always popular and draws people not only from Cadiz but other places as well. A few new people also seem to discover it each year, she said.
Clement, who led the meeting in Lisowsky and Board President Jean Martin’s absence, mentioned at the meeting that advance purchase of tickets were encouraged, especially for those eating dinner, but that last-minute attendees would not be turned away. She said she knew of at least one couple from out-of-town that had been vacationing at the lodge the previous year and came to the dance after they heard about it.
