Posted: Nov. 25, 2012 2:07 am Updated: Dec. 9, 2012 2:15 am

The Quincy Art Center celebrates the 82nd Beaux Arts Ball, a Quincy tradition, from 7 to 11 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 22, at the Oakley-Lindsay Center. Music will be provided by Mobile Entertainer.

The reigning queen, Mia McNay, daughter of Richard and Patricia McNay, will crown the new queen during the coronation ceremony beginning at 8 p.m. Tom Van Ness will serve as master of ceremonies.

Sponsors for the ball are Pepsi Refreshment Services, Sturhahn Jewlers, Gully Transportation, Specs, Advance Physical Therapy, Quincy Medical Group, Grimm-Schlipman Financial Group, Schuecking's Men Wear, Eighth Avenue Villager, Great River Aviation LLC, State Street Bank, Freiburg Insurance Agency, Quincy Recycle, Paradise Pools, Tranquility Med Spa, Happel Inc. Realtors, McDonalds, Bennett and Middendorf, Titan Wheel International, Wellman's Florist, The Quincy Herald-Whig, and WGEM.

The 82nd Beaux Arts Ball is dedicated to the late Connie Williams Robertson, Quincy's second Beaux Arts Ball queen, crowned in 1939 for receiving the most ticket pledges. Since 1930, the ball has evolved and changed into what it is today. The main focus of the Beaux Arts Ball has always been to support the Quincy Art Center.

For the fourth year, the Beaux Arts Ball Commission will recognize not only the fundraising abilities of the queen candidates but their volunteer efforts as well. This award, "The Beaux Arts Ball Young Woman of Achievement Award," will be presented during the Beaux Arts Ball coronation and will be awarded to a young woman who has taken the additional initiative to volunteer at the Quincy Art Center.

Tickets are $15 in advance and may be purchased from any queen candidate. Tickets will be $20 at the door. Students under age 14 must be accompanied by an adult. Student IDs will be required.

Tables of eight may be reserved for $75 by contacting Ariel Prost at 223-4155. Open seating is available, but tables must be reserved. Reserved tables do not include admission to the ball. Table reservations must be made on or before Dec. 15.
