On NOVEMBER 10, 2012 we are celebrating the Sesquicentennial of Victor Hugo’s “Les Misérables”. Better known as “Les Mis”. This will be a Charity Grand Ball to raise money for battered and abused women and children. The Beneficiary we have chosen is “People helping People”. We will be introducing Ronald Tolley, Author and Visionary who founded this amazing event.
Ronald named it, “A Night of a Thousand Cosettes” in honor of all the Cosettes out there that were once rescued from an abusive family like the little 5 year old Cosette in Les Mis, or the teenage Cosette who was educated, loved and well dressed to the Bride Cosette. Ronald wants this event to be a Daddy-Daughter Dance and couples are invited too! Come and enjoy an evening going back in time, with live dancers to perform and teach from the Old Glory Vintage Dancers, to Catered Refreshments, professional live music, professional Singers and professional Photographers, a life long memory to make with all who attend.
We encourage you to come dressed in mid 1850’s attire as the little Cosette who was saved from an abusive family dressed in rags, the teen Cosette well educated and well loved, or the Bride Cosette.
The event is November 10, 2012 in the Grand Ballroom at the Gateway inside the old Union Pacific Railroad Station in Salt Lake City Utah. It begins at 7:00 until 11:30 p.m. Tickets can be purchased here. All proceeds go to People helping People.
Each young woman is invited to refine, mold, or create her own platform which echoes the sentiments of Victor Hugo or brings new light, new hope, clearer understanding to the problems which trap children, women, and men in prisons of ignorance and misery.
~ Ronald Tolley
Celebrating the sesquicentennial of Les Misérables, its rise, its message, its publication, its ultimate impact.
” …. so long as ignorance and misery exist on earth, books of [ the ] nature [ of Les Miserables ] cannot be useless. “
