Back by popular demand, the St. Charles History Museum is holding a festive holiday gala fundraiser on Friday, Dec. 9, at the St. Charles Country Club. This event is open to the public and dinner reservations are now being accepted. Seating is limited.

Museum president Steve Gibson says, "When we had our gala last year, we didn't know what to expect in terms of community response. The word 'overwhelming' is not sufficient to describe the support we received. This year, we are looking forward to even more fun and a chance to see all our friends again!"

 

The holiday gala fundraiser will celebrate the theme "It's A Wonderful Life In St. Charles-'70s Edition." It will include a cocktail reception, cash bar, three-course meal, and a silent auction. Festive holiday attire is requested. Complimentary valet service and coat check will be provided.

Holiday gala reservations are now open. Cost is $125 per person. Tables for 10 are available as well. Reservations may be made at stcmuseum.org/gala2022.

An after-dinner 1970s-themed festive music program that will put all in a very nostalgic mood will be provided by award-winning vocalist Maureen Christine, a Grammy nominated national recording artist. She has sung for astronaut Buzz Aldrin, opened for Helen Reddy and Willie Nelson, and shared the stage with Barry Manilow. She won first place in the nation for the song she wrote and sang for United Way, and she's an exclusive artist on the Illinois Arts Council Artstour Roster. For this event, Christine will be joined by Michael Bazan and quartet. She will bring her "crystal clear voice with a warm and genuine personality" to songs from the 1970s and more!

Gluten-free and vegetarian dinner options are available upon request.

To reserve your seat or an entire table, go to stcmuseum.org/gala2022.
