On Saturday, October 13, supporters of the Barrington Youth Dance Ensemble (BYDE) were treated to a lively evening of Latina dance, dining and carousel rides at the Eden Palais Carousel House on the Barrington Hills estate of Jasper and Marian Sanfilippo.
The evening began with docent led tours of the Sanfilippo home featuring the Place de la Musique, a world-renowned collection of antique music machines, phonographs, and arcade games within a breathtaking French Second Empire setting. The evening ended with a spirited auction and rides on the spectacular Eden Palais, a beautifully restored 1890 carousel with 36 hand-carved Hübner horses and four ornate rocking gondolas.
Proceeds from the event will benefit BYDE’s arts education mission and the 2012 production of The Nutcracker.
