Rescue Party 2017

Join us April 29 for great food, old school cocktails, swing dancing, and more at Indiana Landmarks’ annual Rescue Party, benefitting our Endangered Places program.

Rescue Party 2017

Saturday, April 29, 2017

6-11 p.m.
Indiana Landmarks Center

Swing into Indiana Landmarks Center on April 29 for culinary delights, Sun King beer and old school cocktails, 1940s club-like entertainment, dancing, and more—all for a good cause.

Wine, Sun King beer, soft drinks, and Hotel Tango tasting bar are included in the ticket price, and we’ll have cash bars for cocktails. Heavy hors d’oeuvres start the evening and late-night buffets come later, with scrumptious dessert and coffee bars.

Enjoy swing dancing when Cool City Band takes the stage with special guest Shannon Forsell.

Deck out in your best duds and snap a photo at our selfie station, where guests can star in their own vintage poster. And don’t miss a special appearance by the Andrews Sisters!

We’ll auction a handful of one-of-a-kind experiences under the gavel of Indiana native Zan Aufderheide, a national auctioneer. She’ll also emcee the evening, when we’ll announce the 10 Most Endangered and the winner of the Cook Cup for Outstanding Restoration.

The party, from 6-11 p.m., fills all the beautiful spaces in Indiana Landmarks Center, 1201 Central Avenue in Indianapolis.

Rescue Party raises money for our Endangered Places programs—10 Most Endangered, grants and loans, advocacy and strategy—that help save communally-cherished historic structures, preserve heritage and revitalize Hoosier communities.

Attire for Rescue Party is swing-style cocktail.

Come to Rescue Party for less by choosing the early-bird options available through April 7, 2017: $70/Friend or $125/Patron

Beginning April 8, standard pricing kicks in: $85/Friend or $150/Patron

With a Patron ticket, you get reserved seating at tables of 4 or 10 (new this year), table beverage service, and a culinary surprise. If you buy patron tickets for less than 4 or 10, you’ll share a table with other interesting people!

Reservation deadline is April 21, 2017.
