Starry Night is a signature cocktail for the annual BIAK Brain Ball

Posted: Updated:

The Brain Injury Alliance of Kentucky will hold its 11th Annual "A Night of Stars" Brain Ball on Friday, November 22, 2013 at the Seelbach Hotel. Brown Forman Chief Entertaining Officer Tim Laird and Brain Ball coordinator Pam Broadus explain how the party benefits BIAK. Plus Tim shared a recipe for a signature drink made just for the event called the Starry Night.

The Starry Night

In a white wine glass, add:

4 ounces Korbel Brut California Champagne

2 ounces white cranberry peach juice

½ ounce blue curacao

The Varga Family held the first Brain Ball in 2003, in support of Mary Varga, a brain injury survivor who was assisted by BIAK during her recovery. Guests of the Ball will be greeted by a host of Stars on the Red Carpet and enjoy a reception featuring the signature drink. Next are dinner, a live program including a look back at the 11-year history of the Brain Ball, and presentation of the 11th Annual Mary Varga Award honoring Sydney Alvey, also a brain injury survivor.

A Live Auction will be conducted, and guests will follow the BIAK Walk of Fame to the Living Legends Ballroom for the Ball; then proceed to the Seelbach Rathskeller, which will be transformed into the "Hollywood Hills Lounge" where guests will dance away the night with the fabulous live band, Kudmani, for the Lounge After Party (9pm-12am). Tickets are available for the After Party Only.

Live auction items include trips to exotic locations, a personal tour of the Jack Daniels Distillery, use of a suite at Churchill Downs and a White Castle party for 100 people!
