Class Experience

Pull out your poodle skirts and leather jackets, channel your inner Danny Zeko and Sandy Olsson and join us for this year's Fundraising Gala "Sock Hop- 100 Years of Rockin' the Block"! 

During this bash we encourage everyone to dress up in 1950's threads and meet us at the diner to rock the celebration of our main building's 100 year anniversary! 

This made in the shade night includes a diner serving delicious food, a "drive-in" game room,  and a cash "soda"  bar serving signature cocktails, beer, and wine.  Plan on joining  the most fun costume contest you will ever experience.

We are offering Sock Hop dance classes ahead of time, so you can learn some basic 1950's dance moves to show off at the Gala, if you dig it. We are also offering sew your own poodle skirt classes if you would like to make your own garb. 

Don't be a square and join us for a tubular time!

Tickets are $45/each or $80 for two. If you would like the discount please select the add on option "Additional ticket (discounted)" for $35.
