“The Mother’s Day VIP Reception is the second event of 2022 in North Little Rock’s Setting the Table Culinary Initiative,” Kouns said. “We want to not only highlight Arkansas makers and producers, but also give back to the community. Ten percent of ticket sales will benefit North Little Rock nonprofit Potluck Food Rescue for Arkansas, which distributes healthy food to nonprofit community food programs.”
Ballet Arkansas Presents Live at the Plaza is two weekends of free performances and recreational classes led by Ballet Arkansas at Argenta Plaza at 510 Main Street in North Little Rock. A schedule and more program details will be available soon at www.balletarkansas.org.
