Join Concord Historical Society for a fabulous evening of food, fellowship and fun at the second annual dinner-auction, All That Jazz. It’s being held on November 12, 2016 at Centre Concord, 5298 Clayton Rd, 5:30-9:00 p.m.
Catering by Englund’s Café, a live auction with auctioneer Dennis McCormick, silent auction, raffle, balloon pop, grab bag and dessert auction are only a few of the planned activities. Among the auction items are one week at a Twain Harte cabin, a watercolor by an award winning artist, and tickets to both Giants baseball and Cal football.
All proceeds benefit the ongoing restoration of the former Masonic Lodge, soon to become the Concord Museum and Event Center at 1928 Clayton Rd.
Tickets are $60 per person, or $600 for a table of 10. For reservations visit our website and order tickets on-line, or contact Lind Higgins email@example.com or 925-682-6383. Event Coordinator Carol Longshore can provide more information 925 685-6710 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
“Last year, one of the greatest benefits of this event was seeing long-time Concord residents reunite with friends they hadn’t seen in years,” according to CHS president Longshore. “There was a real feeling of community.”
For nearly 45 years Concord Historical Society has been preserving, restoring and sharing the history of Concord, including the restoration and opening of the Galindo Home and Gardens to the public and educational programs for school children.
Since 2013, when the Historical Society arranged to have the former Masonic Lodge building moved to its current site, the Society has been working tirelessly to renovate and improve the structure.
Reaching their goal of raising an additional $500,000 will enable the Society to complete the renovations. The building’s first floor will house an event center with professional kitchen, which can be rented by local groups and individuals. The second floor museum and education-resource center will feature the Society’s extensive artifact collection.
When completed the Museum and Event Center will proudly take part in the city’s Sesquicentennial in 2018 – preserving the spirit of Concord past for future generations and playing an integral part in revitalizing the downtown as Concord moves into the future.Visit Event Website for More Info
