Rescue Party: Tiki Time

Join us April 25 for great food, music, and more at Indiana Landmarks’ annual Rescue Party, benefiting our Endangered Places program.

Saturday, April 25, 2020

6-11 p.m., Indiana Landmarks Center, Indianapolis

NOTE: Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, this event has been postponed. Check back for updates or call us at 800-450-4534, 317-639-4534. We apologize for any inconvenience!

On April 25, help Indiana Landmarks save historic places while enjoying Tiki Time at the 2020 Rescue Party.

We’ll transport you to the South Seas with food, drinks, music, décor and more. Welcome music by the Islanders sets the tone for a Martin Denny-inspired cocktail hour with generous appetizers. Enjoy free craft beer supplied by Upland Brewing Company, sample our signature Tiki cocktail, or order mixed drinks at cash bars.

We’ll announce this year’s 10 Most Endangered and present the Cook Cup for Outstanding Restoration before Indiana native Zan Aufderheide, national auctioneer and entertaining emcee, offers a handful of one-of-a-kind excursions and experiences for bid.

After the program, get ready for a late-night buffet and a dessert bar featuring tropical flavors, while the Impalas get you moving to the music with a lively mix of dance tunes and Tiki party favorites.

The party, from 6-11 p.m., fills all the beautiful spaces in Indiana Landmarks Center, 1201 Central Avenue in Indianapolis. Dress for the event in your best Tiki party style – think tropical prints, floral cocktail dresses, sarongs, and hair flowers.

The event raises money for Indiana Landmarks’ Endangered Places programs—10 Most Endangered, grants and loans, advocacy and strategy—that help save historic structures in jeopardy and revitalize Hoosier communities.

Reservation deadline is April 17, 2019. Tickets cost $75/friend, $125/patron before April 5. After April 5, tickets cost $85/friend, $150/patron. Buy tickets below, directly at, or call 800-450-4534.
