‘1927 Gala’ to offer fine dining as take-out experience
The Community House has re-imagined its annual “1927 Gala” fundraiser, set for Jan. 22.
While it may be too soon for a traditional banquet-style dinner, TCH is bringing multiple-course fine dining to the safe comfort of one’s own home. Some of the island’s top chefs are teaming up in the facility’s kitchen to prepare special dishes for a take-home feast, complete with wine, that is designed to impress the most demanding foodies. A home delivery option will be available for those who need it.
In addition to the meal, the “1927 Gala” will include an online program of live music, entertainment and a live auction streamed from TCH stage. It is recommended that people get their tickets early.
The name “1927 Gala” commemorates the year The Community House was originally opened. The cottage-style building, which faces Periwinkle Way, is now one of Sanibel’s designated historic landmarks. It was built by members of the community who donated the funds, materials and labor to create a place where all islanders could gather for social, civic, cultural and educational activities.
Today, almost 100 years later, The Community House continues to play an important role as the “Heart of the Island” and the center for social and civic gatherings. A nonprofit, it is operated by the Sanibel Community Association, with support coming entirely from membership and user fees, plus donations.
Event tickets are $160 per person and are tax deductible.
