'A Night of Haunted Elegance' benefit gala

Guests attending this year's costume ball will experience a night full of spooks and surprises, and those dressed in a formal costume will have a chance to win $1,000 in the costume contest.
While guests are indulging in delicious delights, they will also experience a ghostly waltz from Titusville's Downtown Dance Studio and the mysterious magic of Todd Bogue.
The "La Cita Legend" sets the tone for this year's gala. The legend is told of a plantation property in Titusville, Florida that is passed down through family generations and ends in the hands of the last heir, a woman. The mistress of the mansion always flaunted her good fortune, throwing lavish parties, until the entire family and staff suffer a mysterious death. Now, she refuses to accept her fate to cross to the other side, so she continues to host elaborate parties night after night and keeps her staff trapped in this world.
This night, Oct. 26, guests are invited to her All Hallow's Eve gala where one guest will break the mistress' spell and free the staff forever.
General admission tickets to the ball may be purchased for $100 per person. Additional sponsorships are available starting at $350. Space is limited.

Different Worlds Band to play at Space Coast State Fair
Different Worlds Band will play the Space Coast State Fair on Saturday, Nov. 17, on the Coors Light Main Stage, from 3-6 p.m.
Different Worlds is a band made from many influences. They have members that range in age from late 20s to "seasoned."
These hand-picked musicians come from backgrounds in gospel, blues, soul, rock, reggae, and "blue eyed soul."
Their differences in generation, music and upbringing are formidable; however, Different Worlds Band brings these cultural gaps together to bring a fresh new approach to their most common denominator ... the music.
Different Worlds Band are quickly becoming an area favorite in local clubs and venues, performing and array of rock and soul.
They bring unique energy and vocal harmonies to each selection, with a reverence to the artists that brought these songs to life.
These selections include classics from Eric Clapton to Marvin Gaye, Rare Earth to the Temptations and The Four Tops.
This fresh new sound is really just a return to some of the best music recorded from some of music's greatest artists.
They will take you on journeys through the Stax Recording Era out of Memphis, to the psychedelic street of the '70s; then off you go to the Motor City of Detroit for a trip down Motown Boulevard.
Different Worlds is most definitely one of the "must see" acts coming to the State Fair this year.
The Space Coast State Fair will be held at Space Coast Stadium. The concert is free to the public.
