New Year’s Eve Fundraiser at the Cardinal Center - FREE Admission

Due to disappointing advance tickets sales to their New Year’s Eve Fundraiser at the Cardinal Center (formerly Gettysburg School), the Friends of the Cardinal Center have decided to cancel their sponsorship of the event rather than risk taking a loss. As this cancellation would cause a loss of income to the musical acts already contracted for the event, a Gettysburg resident approached the Village of Gettysburg at the December 10 Council meeting with a proposal to keep the event in place with a different format.

The Council was asked to sponsor the New Year’s Eve event so that insurance would be in place and the Cardinal Center could be used. The resident guaranteed expenses so that no Village money would be at risk and any profits from the evening would be used to help fund the 2016 Gettysburg Homecoming Festival fireworks being held in June. The Gettysburg council accepted the proposal and agreed to sponsor the New Year’s Eve Event.

The New Year’s Eve event will now be open to the public. Admission is free with an optional $10 suggested donation per person to help cover expenses. The doors will open for a social hour starting at 7:30 featuring music by guitarist Mike Sedmak and the Bob Gray Orchestra will start at 9:00 and play until 12:15 as previously planned. There will be no dinner or raffle. Snacks and drinks will be available for a donation. Attendees may bring their own snacks and beverages, but NO ALCOHOL or GLASS BOTTLES will be permitted. Parking is available in the Cardinal Center lot as well as along Auld St on the North side of the building.

Contact Brett Clark (937)447-2171 at the Gettysburg Village Office from 8-12 Mon-Fri for more information.
