Masquerade organizers seek more ticket sales

There’s been a lot of interest in the City of Andalusia’s Renaissance Masquerade Ball, but tickets sales are scarce.

Stephanie Moceri of the city, who is one of the organizers, said that they need to sell at least 75 tickets for the Relay for Life fundraiser to make the gig worthwhile.

“We have a booth set up at the Covington County Fair to sell tickets for the Renaissance Masquerade Ball on Oct. 29,” Moceri said. “We must sell at least 75 tickets by the end of business on Mon., Oct. 17, or else we will have to cancel the event. If you have already bought tickets, your money will be refunded to you upon cancellation. Any monies raised from the Masquerade Ball goes to Relay for Life.”

The event will feature a murder mystery skit by ACT I and a magic show by Ron Patterson.

Moceri said there will be awards for best costume and best mask awards.

“The cash prize for those awards is enough to get your money back for coming to the ball,” she said.

Masks are mandatory for the event, she said.

“It’s not mandatory that you dress in Renaissance garb,” she said. “You can wear anything as long as it’s not rude, crude or provocative. And weapons must be play.”

Tickets are also on sale on the third floor of city hall and cost $25 for one or $40 for two.

The event will be held at the Kiwanis Center from 7:30 p.m. until 11 p.m.
