Still time to make the Tiffany Ball

| 15 Feb 2012 | 09:11

    Goshen — The inaugural Tiffany Ball was such a hit, it's fast becoming Goshen's newest tradition. The ball will return from 6 to 11 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 1, at the Harness Racing Museum in Goshen. Organizers describe it as an "elegant evening of fabulous food and spirits, with music and dancing on a Saturday night right here close to home.... Invite your friends or assemble a whole table of colleagues." The museum will once again be prepared to seat 120 guests with 12 beautifully laid tables, an open bar, a dance floor, and music. The buffet will be catered by Catherine's Restaurant. Chris Tucci returns as the evening's DJ. Proceeds will help pay for repairs and the preservation of the church's magnificent and priceless Tiffany stained glass windows that grace the entire back wall of the church. A series of three elaborate panels, entitled "The Resurrection," was created by the famed American artist Louis Comfort Tiffany, and installed in 1925. A second Tiffany window, titled "Christ and the Pilgrims," was added to the church sanctuary in 1930. Both windows' frames have needed to be replaced for many years. With the help of several key fundraisers and community support, repairs will be soon underway to allow these one-of-a-kind American masterpieces to be cherished by future generations. Reservations will be taken on a first-come, first-served basis. For more information or book reservations for $100 per person, call Barbara Hankins at 294-8410.
