Make your reservation for Friday, May 4. Homestead Village will be "Swingin' for a Cause" at its 1940s-themed spring gala, which will benefit the Homestead Village Endowment Fund. Donation includes hors d'oeuvres and cocktails, seated dinner with dessert, and exciting entertainment. The evening is sure to be a celebration like no other, as there will be something to enjoy on all three floors of the historic Booking House in Manheim:
Dust off your dancing shoes and swing to the sounds of Lebanon Big Swing Band. Need a little help perfecting those dance moves? The Victrola House Dancers will be attending to offer swing dance instruction and to help keep the dance floor swinging.
Be transported back in time with Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin, appearing for one night only in the lower nightclub.
Enjoy a special round of spirits and cigars while getting war news directly from Douglas MacArthur, who will be mingling with the troops in the VIP officers club on the third floor.
Dress in your best attire from the 1940s or today! A photographer will be on site to capture all of the fun of the evening.
Not sure how to create that perfect victory roll or the iconic red lip of the ‘40s? Flirty Forty’s Salon will come to the rescue. We will be offering hair and makeup appointments for the day of the gala at The Bachman Center at Homestead Village. Services will be provided by Michael Christopher Hair Salon. Book your appointment now by calling Jennifer at 717-874-4236.
The purpose of our 1940s gala is to raise money for our Endowment Fund, which benefits residents that have outlived their personal resources. Homestead Village has a history of never asking a resident to leave due to his or her financial situation. With support from generous donors like you, we can continue this tradition.
