Join us for a fabulous evening of ambiance, dancing, cocktails and locally-sourced hors d'oeuvres, a clever silent auction and wine grab, and a memorable night at historic Old Slater Mill.

Local Latin fare from La Casona, Churiscarria Marques, Caprichos Antioquenos, and Lleras Grille.

Local celeb Klem Klimek of NRBQ fame, and star of the 1988 film "(It's a) Complex World" and his quartet The Buddy System, will liven the mill with live R & B and dance music.

Fun and plentiful silent auction prizes, including "Grab a Beer with Mayor Grebien," artwork from Slater Mill exhibitions, an 18th century Spinning Wheel, dinner and theater combos, and more.
