The Eau Claire Children’s Theatre’s production of Alice in Wonderland may have wrapped, but the fun and adventure aren’t over yet. You’ll have a second chance to visit Wonderland on Saturday, Nov. 14, when you head out to the Make Believe Ball. This ECCT fundraising event will run from 5:30pm to 10pm at the Plaza Hotel (1202 W. Clairemont Ave.). It’s hosted by the King and Queen of the Ball, Matt Malone and Sue Kelly from I-94 Radio. This magical evening includes something for each member of the family. There’ll be delights such as a jazz octet, dinner with live entertainment, and photo booth fun for all. For the adults there will also be a cash bar, after-dinner drinks, a silent auction, raffles, and games of chance. And the kiddos will be awed and enraptured by Mad Hatter hats, balloon animals, a magician, and more. Black tie dress is “admired, but not required,” as are festive attire or costumes for the kids. Tickets are limited, so call (715) 839-8877 for details.
