Indiana Landmarks Inaugural Rescue Party, Apr. 28
By Jen Schmits Thomas
On behalf of Indiana Landmarks Center
On April 28, 2012, from 6 to 11 pm, Indiana Landmarks will stage its inaugural Rescue Party, a benefit for the organization’s Endangered Places Program.
The evening features an Iron Chef-style cocktail competition, with artisan-bartenders from The Ball & Biscuit, The Libertine, and St. Elmo. One of the judges will be drawn from the audience. Katrina Basile, co-chair of Rescue Party with her husband Frank, heads the panel of judges.
Music and performance art by Know No Stranger complements REVIVAL, a show of art created from rescued materials by Kipp Normand—his first solo show since 2007. The Impalas and dancing follow a program then includes the announcement of 2012’s “10 Most Endangered” list, awarding of the Cook Cup for Outstanding Restoration, and a live auction of fabulous dinners in private historic houses you’ve always wanted to see.
Lavish hors d’oeuvres and desserts by Indiana Landmarks Centers’ five caterers ensure you won’t go hungry. Sun King Brewery provides Indiana Landmarks Wit, created for last year’s grand opening of the center and back by popular demand. In addition to complimentary beer and wine, the winning cocktail will be available later in the evening at cash bars.
Tickets are $75 each ($125 for patrons). Dress is festive casual. For info, call Indiana Landmarks, 317-639-4534 or visit www.IndianaLandmarks.org. You can register online: www.rescueparty.eventbrite.com.
