‘Swingsation’ gala event


Mon, Oct 27th, 2014
Posted in All Commentary

New this year at the annual Swingsation Gala Event is cuisine by Johnny Mango’s Catering. Benefitting year-round arts programming of Lanesboro Arts, the Swingsation event will be held on Saturday, November 8, 2014 at the Lanesboro Community Center (202 Parkway Ave S in Lanesboro, Minn.). At $65 per person, tickets are sold in advance from Lanesboro Arts, (507)467-2446. The event will feature music by Prudence Johnson and the Swingsation Orchestra, emcees Jess Abrahamson and Tom Overlie of KTTC News, a cash bar, and lots of art and unique auction items in the silent and live auctions.

Growing up in a stereotypical Greek family, Johnny Mango’s love of food began at an early age because of his family’s restaurant business in Seattle, Wash. There he nurtured and cultivated his love of fresh food, and the realization of how central food and a special meal is to family and celebrations. Johnny eventually ran the business before venturing into the private golf and five-star restaurant worlds in the Midwest. Now with his own business in Rochester, Minn., Johnny caters all kinds of food events, from ethnic celebrations to weddings.

Always a spectacular event for a good cause, Swingsation this year will bring singer Prudence Johnson back to Lanesboro. A frequent guest on A Prairie Home Companion with Garrison Keillor, the nationally-acclaimed artist and her band rocked the dance floor at last year’s Swingsation event. Her 25-year career in music has taken Prudence Johnson from nightclubs and honky-tonks to Carnegie Hall, from the theater stage to the Silver Screen (Robert Redford’s A River Runs Through It), from the Midwest to the Middle East. At Swingsation, she will perform with her ‘Swingsation Orchestra’, a hand-picked group of excellent musicians.

Silent, live, and sealed bid auction items will include artwork like a leather purse by Ilse Heider, photo impressionism pieces by Ron Germundson, paintings by Kay Raabe and Sara Lubinski and Laura Tundel, hand carved wood pieces by Pam Reilly and Roger Meyer, and an “Eagle in Flight” sculpture by Carl John Thompson. The auction will also include unique items and special events like a Johnny Mango Private Dinner Party, 18 Holes golf & lunch at Somerby Golf in Byron, a Private Dinner Party by Gordy & Val at the Lanesboro Diner, a Sailing Tour on Lake Minnetonka, and tickets to the Chicago Symphony Orchestra.
