TACA Custom Auction Gala Item #2 — Dance And Dinner With France’s Compagnie Hervé Koubi

Despite Henry Wadsworth Longfellow‘s proclamation that music is the universal language, it isn’t the only one. No, siree. Dancing is, too. Through its physicality and motion, it reflects everything from unique cultures to the interpretation of emotions. This second TACA Custom Auction Gala package offers a dazzling opportunity to more than just be an observer.

Dance And Dinner With France’s Compagnie Hervé Koubi*

World-renowned for its prowess and beauty, the male dance company of France’s Compagnie Hervé Koubi is quite simply breathtaking to behold thanks to French/Algerian choreographer Hervé Koubi. In 2016 the troupe’s artistry received glorious reviews as well as standing ovations.

The winning bidder of this package will more than attend the TITAS presentation of the troupe in January. They along with seven of his/her guests will arrive at the Winspear before all the hoi polloi. The reason? So, they can have “backstage access for the pre-performance warm-up.”  Afterward the lucky eight will head to the Brierley Suite for a seated dinner prepared by Wolfgang Puck’s folks.

As other members of the audience arrive for the evening performance, the winner and guests will take their places in a private box to watch the performance that will be mesmerizing. And to top off the evening, they’ll join the dancers on stage for a post-performance champagne toast. A simple bravo just isn’t enough, don’t you know.

Wolfgang Puck Lands Another Exclusive Catering Contract In The NonProfit Sector

Wolfgang Puck’s catering group will be cooking up a storm at another nonprofit’s venue. The California-based chef has been named the exclusive caterer for the in-the-process-of-being -built Perot Museum of Nature & Science.

In addition to having a full-time catering team on-site at the Museum, the group will also offer the Real.Delicious. program of “seasonal menus when full-service catering is not required. Online ordering and drop-off service will be ideal for events such as children’s birthday parties, breakfast meetings and picnics.”

In addition to the Perot Museum, Wolfie is also handling such local nonprofits as the Nasher Sculpture Center and the AT&T Performing Arts Center.

According to the Museum’s Director of Sales Linda Murdock, “By offering two catering concepts, the Perot Museum will be able to accommodate almost every budget and need — from casual to ultra-sophisticated, from groups of 10 to 1,000-plus guests.”
