The Pelham Art Center plans to shimmy, foxtrot and Charleston right into the Roaring Twenties on Saturday, May 14 at its “Gatsby Garden Party,” the Center’s 36th annual spring benefit.
An announcement says, “Guests will feast on a three-course small plates gourmet dinner served at stations complete with decadent desserts, all catered by Pelham’s own “Rollin’ Bistro” – restaurant Bistro Rollin’s new catering business. Cocktail options will include wine, beer, and cocktails including the evening’s signature drink, the Southside. The sounds of the Jazz Age will fill the air throughout the evening with dance music following dinner. All ticket levels include dinner, dessert and cocktails. Valet parking will be available…. Among the bevy of silent auction items, guests may bid on a private tour of the Brant Art Foundation in Greenwich, CT, select art pieces, CNBC and Art in America internships as well as stays in private homes in Budapest, Ireland and Bar Harbor.” There will be the Robins Art + Giving Fund, where guests may make contributions to directly fund free art workshops, class scholarships, bus transportation for visiting schoolchildren, free gallery tours, and artists-in-residence for at-risk youth.
The event is being organized by Committee Co-chairs Leslie Berkery and Robin Bratone, as well as Board Chair Barbara Carden and President Anna Riehl.
Individual tickets are $175 (Sponsor), $400 (Patron) and $1,000 (Benefactor) and can be purchased by phone, mail or online (pelhamartcenter.org/events). The RSVP deadline is tomorrow. For more information, call 914.738.2525×111 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
