DENHAM SPRINGS -- Main Street volunteers will present a gala to raise funds for a permanent exhibit about the history of the city.
The “Tracks Through Time” gala will be held from 6-9 p.m. on Friday, May 3, at Forrest Grove Plantation in Denham Springs. The evening will include cocktails, dinner, raffles, musical entertainment, and silent and live auctions.
Tickets for the gala are a $75 donation per person and are available through PayPal by visiting www.denhamspringsmainstreet.org. They can also be purchased at Old City Hall.
Funds from the gala will go toward establishing a permanent exhibit at Old City Hall in the Denham Springs Antique Village, which was placed on the National Register of Historic Places last November.
Denham Springs Main Street, a self-sustained, non-profit, all-volunteer group, has been working for more than 20 years to help promote and preserve the downtown area. It is part of the Louisiana Main Street and Main Street America programs that promote historical preservation nationwide.
As part of the fundraising efforts, sponsorships are available for the gala at various levels, as well as the naming/dedication rights of the museum rooms at Old City Hall. Anyone interested in these opportunities may call Pat Genre at (225) 933-2867 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
