MILFORD — With two years of Roaring 20s Lawn Party experience in their fedora’s, members of Milford’s Historical Preservation Group are gearing up for another sensational gathering.
The event will be held Saturday, May 20 from 5-8 p.m. at Causey Mansion Bed & Breakfast in downtown Milford in conjunction with the Milford Museum at $50 each.
Admission includes catering, a silent auction and a live auction including big-ticket items such as the original event poster created by Milford resident Nadia Zychal.
The Red Hot Ramblers will offer a roaring style of 1920s era music with room for someone to become the bee’s knees of the dance floor.
“Where else can you get dressed up in your best clothes and have fun in a costume if you want, listen to 20s music, get free drinks, free food and be surrounded with other people just as excited to be dressed up? That’s the thing: everyone is so excited to be there,” event organizer Patti Persia said.
The group hopes to raise at least $4,000 this year through the event which would be split between the Milford Historical Preservation Group and the Milford Museum.
The preservation group hopes to use funds to fix up historical homes in the downtown area. They recently chose their first home to work on using about $4,000 for minor cosmetic issues, according to Ms. Persia. Bay Pro Contracting is also donating time and supplies to help the project go further.
Construction on the building, which sits next door to Downtown Milford, Inc.’s office, will being in April or May going into June. The group also hopes to use some of their available funds toward starting Milford’s inaugural Porch and Garden tour set for Sunday, June 25 from 11-3 p.m.
Tickets for the Roaring 20s event can be purchased at Milford Friends and Antiques, online through Eventbrite or at the door with cash. The Milford Historic Preservation Group is a part of Downtown Milford, Inc.’s Design Committee.
