The venue was transformed from restaurant to vintage discotheque, complete with stunning table centerpieces, purple up-lights and fairy lights, and of course a spinning DISCO BALL! Fun was had by all as over 200 attendees networked and enjoyed heavy hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar before being seated to enjoy the show.
Lt. Gov. Billy Nungesser and Club President Lynn Coxe Graham welcomed our guests, and Laurie Adams performed her MC duties flawlessly. Our dancing couples worked for months to perfect and perform their dance routines to such tunes as “Boogie Wonderland,” “Jump Shout Boogie,” “My Girl,” “Boogie Fever,” “Boot Scootin’ Boogie,” among others.
Proceeds will fund election integrity advocacy, voter outreach, and voter registration programs. The East Baton Rouge Parish Republican Women have also partnered with the Greater Baton Rouge Young Republicans to support their voter turnout efforts in critical congressional races this election season.
