SARATOGA SPRINGS – Area residents looking for a reason to get dressed up and party is holiday season can enjoy one of Saratoga Springs’ most elegant locations at the Saratoga Springs History Museum’s Holiday Gala. Saratoga Springs’ only organization devoted exclusively to all aspects of preserving the history of the Spa City, hosts its annual holiday fundraiser from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. Friday, Dec. 9 at the Canfield Casino.
The Holiday Gala is one of the most entertaining annual fundraisers in Saratoga Springs as it transforms the holiday-decorated Canfield Casino into one of Saratoga’s most colorful periods: the big band swing era of the great lake houses.
Harkening back to that celebrated era, the Canfield Casino will become a period nightclub featuring a mix of contemporary and nostalgic music by The Karen Lawrence Band.
Longfellow’s Restaurant, one of Saratoga Springs’ foremost special event caterers, is providing sumptuous dinner stations. Guests will be welcomed with complimentary photographs from the Saratoga Photobooth Company. Attendees can also play games of chance for fun at one of the most anticipated holiday parties in Saratoga Springs.
All proceeds will support the museum’s ongoing educational projects, materials and events. The History Museum is one of the first stops in the City for schoolchildren, local families and tourists wanting to know more about our rich, unique history.
Tickets are $65.00 in advance, $55.00 for museum members, $55.00 for those 40 and under, and $75.00 at the door. Tickets can be purchased by calling 584-6920 or online at www.saratogahistory.org.
The Holiday Gala is made possible by The Saratogian, with additional support from The Adirondack Trust Company, Allerdice Building Supply, Advantage Press, NBT Bank, Noonmark Group LLC, Broadway Title, Saratoga National Bank and Trust, Shannon Rose Design, Saratoga Eagle Sales and Service, Bonacio Construction, The Adirondack Sign Company, NYSNYS.com, The Saratoga Photobooth Company and Stewarts Shops.
