9th Annual Sanfilippo Foundation Halloween Silent Film Gala

Join us for the Foundation's Annual fun-filled Halloween Gala event. This year's theme is "A Swinging Good Time".

We'll start the evening with some touring of the Sanfilippo Collection from 5 :00 pm - 6:00 pm. Then we'll assemble in the theater at 6:00 pm prompt, where our Organist, Jelani Eddington, will accompany the 1924 silent-film comedy, HOT WATER, starring Harold Lloyd, on the Mighty Sanfilippo Wurlitzer. That's right, the sound track and all sound effects performed "live", as they used to do with theater organs.

After the 60-minute film we'll shuttle-bus you down to the Carousel Pavilion for drinks and an elegant dinner starting at 8 pm. **If you're not a B&W silent movie fan, simply come at 7 pm for the party.** During dinner we've got a special surprise for you.

We'll also provide you with a ride on the Eden Palais Carousel. And then from 9 pm - 11 pm, Dance the night away with PARIS SWING, our live band of fantastic musicians doing 20's & 30s swing music.

Costumes are optional, but encouraged for fun (black tie optional). Really, we're relaxed about this part, but it's fun to be incognito now and then: the more incognito, the better the party.

Proceeds from our annual event help us assist more than a dozen and a half charities annually. In exchange for your ticket you get: Touring of the Collection in the Residence; 60-minutes of silent film on our big screen with live organ accompaniment; Free parking; Free shuttle ride to house & Carousel Pavilion; Libations and exquisite food; Carousel rides; Live Swing Band; Prizes for the best costumes; And knowing you're helping local and regional charities. Tickets are $125 each, with limited seating.
