Kansas City Ballet Guild – Nutcracker Luncheon

The Muehlebach Tower of the Kansas City Marriott Downtown was the site for the Kansas City Ballet Guild’s Nutcracker Luncheon, which was held on December 12th. Everyone enjoyed seeing the performance posters from past seasons that were presented by John Walker, Guild president, and members of the Kansas City Ballet archives committee. For those who wanted a souvenir of the delightful day, the nutcrackers that decorated the tables were available for purchase.
