CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo., Jan. 8, 2015 – KRCU will host a Valentine’s Day Party at Isle Casino Cape Girardeau on Friday, Feb. 13. The theme is “A Little Love & Luck” reflecting both Valentine’s Day and the fact the party occurs on Friday the 13th. The event is sponsored by SoutheastHEALTH and Isle Casino Cape Girardeau. Proceeds from the event benefit KRCU.
The evening begins at 6:30 p.m. with a social hour followed by a gourmet buffet dinner at 7 p.m., followed by dancing beginning at 8 p.m. to the music of Shades of Soul.
KRCU last hosted a Valentine’s Party in 2004 and in celebration of the station’s 25th anniversary as an NPR station in 2015, it decided to once again host this popular event.
“We make every effort to see that this special evening is an enjoyable one for our guests,” said KRCU General Manager Dan Woods. “We set the table, provide the music and even clean up afterward. All that’s required of our guests is that they bring their dancing shoes and have a good time with their friends. If guests prefer to just sit back and listen to the music, that’s fine too!”
As part of the celebration, Southeast Sweethearts, married couples who are both alumni of Southeast, will be recognized during the event.
Tickets for the event are $50 each and must be purchased by Feb. 6. Tables of eight with preferred table placement are available for $500. To charge tickets by phone, call KRCU at (573) 651-5070. Tickets also may be purchased at the KRCU studios in the Serena Building on the Southeast campus during business hours or online at krcu.org/valentine.
