The Disco Ball is the name for this year’s annual APRON fundraiser scheduled for June 2.

Themed “We Are Family,” the event will feature restaurants serving cocktails, appetizers and desserts to what will likely be a large crowd.

If you missed last year’s Speakeasy themed event, you missed roaring good time that included a few hundred local folks and restaurant employees mixing it up and enjoying their Sunday off.

All for a good cause, though, of course. The mission of APRON is to provide temporary, limited financial relief to Metro Louisville food and beverage workers at independently owned restaurants and who, by no fault of their own, are facing financial distress due to illness, injury or other issues.

For those not in the industry, trust us, it’s a significant number of people who need routine help, making APRON a truly worthy cause.

All food and drink is donated by participating restaurants, and the funds raised at this annual event go directly to APRON, which reviews the needs of aid applicants and distributes those funds.

Back to this year’s event: Expect a DJ playing disco-inspired music, a silent auction consisting of travel, shopping, dining and spirit products and, well, a heck of a lot of fun. And did we mention incredible food and drink?

The evening is open to the public and it runs from 4-7 p.m. Location is The Ice House, a gorgeous event space at 226 East Washington St.

Tickets are $40 in advance and $50 at the door. Suffice it to say, for what you’ll get and how much fun you’ll have, that’s a heck of way to make a donation! Click here to register.
