The Storybook Ball is the signature fundraising event in support of Family Road of Greater Baton Rouge, a private non-profit 501(c)3 organization that provides social services to the Greater Baton Rouge area community. A dozen larger-than-life storybooks help bring the Ball to life, offering enchantment from classic titles including The Jungle Book, Princess and the Frog, Harry Potter, Where the Wild Things Are, and more. Each book is a different station of fun, interactive activities and costumed characters portrayed by the Castaway theatre group.
Tickets for the Storybook Ball are available through the Family Road website (familyroadgbr.org) and on Eventbrite.
