Get moving at Bainbridge museum's Sock Hop fundraiser

Dig out those saddle shoes and white bucks: The Bainbridge Island Historical Museum is holding its second annual “Sock Hop” fundraiser featuring a great evening of music, dancing, and food.

The sock hop starts at 6 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 19 at the Island School, 8553 NE Day Road.

Maia Santell and House Blend will provide the live music. Tickets include a gourmet buffet by caterer Ann Pearl, an open bar and a dessert auction.

Last year, the Bainbridge Island Historical Museum had more than 10,000 visitors and the numbers continue to climb as a result of the museum’s award-winning exhibits and programs. More than 875 students from our local schools participated in specially tailored tours and projects. The “Sock Hop” helps fund these valuable activities.

Tickets are $75 per person or a table of eight for $500. Get tickets at 206-842-2773, www.bainbridgehistory.org or stop by the museum at 215 Ericksen Ave.
