Fund-Raisers

Somewhere in Time Fundraiser

When: Sat., Jan. 26, 7:30 p.m. 2013

In the roaring teens and ’20s, the Kokoon circle of avant-garde artists threw the wildest parties and pageants the city had ever seen. It was a party so fantastical, it’s a living legend 100 years later, kicking strong tonight. The Western Reserve Historical Society’s annual Somewhere in Time fundraiser gala is tonight, and they have summoned up the spirits of the most decadent revelers of yesteryear with the theme of Kokoon Arts Club 1913 Bal Masque. Step back in time, but step in style — masquerade wear is strongly encouraged. Costume contests will take place throughout the night, and there will be live music, DJs, live and silent auctions and period-inspired food service. The night of nostalgia also includes a look ahead, with the first time unveiling of the History Center Transformation renovation. The event takes place from 7:30 p.m. to 1 a.m.; VIP passes for a 6 to 8 p.m. preview are $250 for non-WRHS members and $200 for members. General admission tickets are $100 for members and $125 for nonmembers before 10 p.m., after which tickets are $25 apiece. Online ticket purchase encouraged. (Joseph Clark)
