Symphony Gala Fundraiser, Jan. 26

It’s time once again for the Knox-Galesburg Symphony’s annual Casino Night Gala and Silent Auction!
This popular event – the only annual fundraiser to benefit the symphony – is now in its 12th year and will be held on Saturday, Jan. 26 at 7 p.m. at the Knights of Columbus Hall, 1556 East Fremont Street in Galesburg.

Drawing on nearly 1000 volunteer hours from your friends and neighbors, the benefit will include a silent auction, official casino games, hot and cold hors d’oeuvres, a 50/50 drawing, and a cash bar, with the “The Bob Clark Combo” providing live entertainment. All the items in the silent auction have been donated by area businesses and organizations. This year’s collection will feature a wide spectrum of merchandise and services – everything from unique gifts and household items to memorabilia and gift certificates for local businesses – ranging in value from $25 to over $1,000. There are some truly amazing deals to be had at this auction! Tickets are $30 each, or two for $50, which includes admission, hot and cold hors d’oeuvres, musical entertainment, and $10 in gambling chips.

Get a group of friends together and make it an evening, knowing that you are providing much needed support for our award-winning symphony. Tickets are available at Innkeeper’s, 80 N. Seminary Street in Galesburg, or by calling the Knox-Galesburg Symphony at 309-341-7268. While supply lasts, tickets will also be available at the door which opens at 6:30 p.m., but you are urged to make reservations in advance, as space is limited.
