Friends of Knute hosts second annual Festival of Tables

The Festival of Tables, presented by Friends of Knute, will be held at 11 a.m. on Saturday, October 27 at Broadway Ballroom. Proceeds will support life enrichment projects and programs for the residents cared for by Knute Nelson.

This event allows table hostesses to decorate a table in a theme of their choice using their own table settings and decorations. There will be around 30 tables.

Table hostesses invite friends to join them at their table. Each table will seat eight people. Guests may come as a group or alone. There will be a catered meal and entertainment by storyteller Paulette Friday, as well as musical entertainment by the Doo-Wop Divas. A cash bar will be available. There will be a Lucky Buck auction.

Tickets are on sale now for $20 per person. Advance tickets must be purchased by Monday, October 15. Tickets may be purchased at Knute Nelson, 420 12th Avenue East in Alexandria. They will not be sold at the door on the day of the event.
