Take a step back in time to experience the spirit of the elegant parties that were once a mainstay of Sonnenberg’s past with the Christmas Gala Ball to be held in the Sonnenberg Mansion this December. The Ball will feature formally attired guests, music, dancing, and food. This will be a rare opportunity to partake of a Victorian fantasy Christmas party in black-ties and evening gowns.
Guests will be able to dance away the dark winter hours in both the Mansion’s Great Hall and Drawing Room where they will also see a special showcase of professional dancing performed by Sean and Susie Buck. When not dancing, guests may wander through the festively decorated mansion—which will be a wonderful photo opportunity. The event will also feature hot hors d’oeuvers and desserts catered by Nolan’s on the Lake, spiced cider, and a cash wine bar. A special Christmas tree will also be set up featuring keepsake ornaments that guests can select and keep. (A donation for each ornament is requested.)
The Christmas Gala Ball will be held in the Sonnenberg Mansion on Sunday, December 15, 4:30 p.m. - 9 p.m. Tickets for the Ball are $55/person, $45/Sonnenberg Members, and $30/students (w/ ID). Prepaid reservations must be made by December 10. Formal attire is required. Guests should use Sonnenberg’s Fort Hill Avenue gate, which is just inside the Canandaigua VA grounds, to drive up to the Mansion's porte-cochere (carriage stop) to drop off guests at the Mansion’s main door. Parking will be in the adjacent VA’s Kennedy lot. For more information or to purchase tickets, please call (585) 394-4922 or go online at www.sonnenberg.org.
