Step into our Mad Hatters luncheon brought directly from the streets of Manhattan as the Baton Rouge Symphony League takes you to sample New York fashion at its finest.

The ballroom will set the mood for a day in the life of a New Yorker. Put on your best hat and enjoy a few hours in the City. Pick up a Big Apple Martini from our Times Square bar and enjoy shopping our auction items on 5th Avenue. The Mistress of Ceremonies, Honorary Chair, and Hat Judges will not disappoint.

This breathtaking affair, featuring a premier fashion show with stellar designers is on Thursday, April 20 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, 4728 Constitution Ave, starting at 11 a.m. with doors opening at 10:30 a.m. for a pre VIP party for our sponsors. Tables and sponsorships can still be purchased through the online website ( as well as Raffle tickets for a beautiful sapphire and diamond bracelet donated by Lee Michaels Fine Jewelry.

The Mad Hatters luncheon is the signature fundraiser for the Baton Rouge Symphony League to benefit The Baton Rouge Symphony Orchestra. This is a unique event supporting the continued arts education and outreach to the young people of Baton Rouge and surrounding areas. The league also hosts an annual Culture Camp for the Boys and Girls Club, supports the Louisiana Youth Orchestra, and participates in many coordinated activities in the arts community.

All of this is possible thanks to the generous support of the citizens and businesses of Baton Rouge.
