Beer, barbecue, and ballet on tap at new fundraiser

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – Beer, barbecue, and ballet were all on tap Saturday night at the Fort Wayne Museum of Art.

This is the first year for the Fort Wayne Ballet’s fundraiser, Beer BarreBQ. It supports outreach and scholarship programs. Nearly 300 people tested out 15 beers and food from seven area restaurants.

“We are really trying to broaden the overall reach and mission of Fort Wayne Ballet and letting everyone in the community know that we have 400 students in four satellite locations and we’re all over Indiana,” said Christy Sandmaier with the Fort Wayne Ballet.

Fort Wayne Ballet is the only professional ballet company in the state.
