Silent Film & Vampire's Kiss Gala

Saturday October 27, 2018

Times: 5 p.m.

Silent Film & Vampire's Kiss Gala

October 27, 2018 - The Sanfilippo Foundation's Silent Film & Vampire's Kiss Gala

This is our 10th anniversary of the Foundation Gala, and we are pulling out all the (organ) stops.

We begin the evening with an hour of touring the Collection in the house and admiring the effort guests put into their fun/scary costumes. Then we'll assemble in the theater and experience one of the greatest B&W Silent films ever made, the 1922 version of Nosferatu: a Symphony of Horror, staring Max Shreck. Our master organist, Jelani Eddington has prepared an original, brilliant soundtrack with sound effects to send chills down your spine. This isn't a movie. This is an experience.

After the movie, we'll transport you to the Carousel Pavilion for libations, socializing, and an elegant sit-down dinner, followed by dancing the night away with our period band, Paris Swing, and of course, a carousel ride, too. But that's not all. As we always do, we'll surprise you!

Costumes are optional, but encouraged for fun. Proceeds from this event help the Foundation offer the Estate & Collections to over two dozen charities annually. We look forward to seeing your creativity and joy.
