Asheville’s smoking hot Moulin Rouge Gala is back. This year, the event takes place on Saturday, Feb. 12 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel and Resort near the Westgate Plaza. Last year, Moulin Rouge took over the Haywood Park Hotel and included cabaret girls and aerial acts in the atrium. This year, the gala is going Bollywood: the Crowne Plaza’s ballroom will be decorated with all things India, and entertainment will include Bala, a local belly-dancing troop headed by Lisa Zahiya.
Tickets for the event are $75, and sales benefit Caring for Children, a nonprofit group that provides services for children and their families, regardless of their ability to pay or draw upon a third-party funding source such as Medicaid. Tickets can be found here.
