Barton Foundation’s 14th annual gala, “La Lune des Moissones”, The Harvest Moon, will be Oct. 22 from 5:30 pm to midnight at Harrah Lake Tahoe’s Convention Center

This elegant dinner-dance affair has grown every year, and it is the largest event for the foundation in both attendance and income. Last year, $63,000 was raised for the Endowment Fund.

Attire for the gala is black-tie optional; suits and evening wear are suggested.

Tickets are $150 per person or $1,650 for a table of 10 with additional sponsorship benefits. The deadline to RSVP is Oct. 15.

Fall theme colors will accent the Convention Center at Harrah’s, transforming the night into a full moon affair.

The silent auction and cocktail hour leads into the 7 p.m. elegant dinner, followed at 9 p.m. by an entertaining live auction, dancing and entertainment by The Heroes from San Diego.

The Heroes offer a seven-piece band that performs soft music during the cocktail and dinner hour. Immediately following dinner, the mood changes to a high-energy presentation that promises to not only get people on their feet, but to keep them there.

They say, “We don’t just play to the crowd, we play with the crowd.” For those wanting a little walk down memory lane, tunes from Frank Sinatra’s era will be included, so bring your waltz and swing shoes along.

Plan to join gala-goers for a wonderful evening of food, wine and entertainment. Wine is provided by Harrah’s during dinner with a full, no-host bar open throughout the night. A fine dinner presentation with five courses accented by fine service and luscious food will take our guests to a special place of being treated like royalty.

If you like a party, enjoy an elegant dinner out or just like to get dressed up, this is a great event for you.
