Historic Indian Agency House ''Christmas at the Kinzies'' - 2012
On Thursday, December 6th, from 6 to 9pm, the Agency House will host its annual holiday fundraising gala. Guests of “Christmas at the Kinzies” will enjoy a nostalgic night of good food, hearty drink, and excellent conversation. Musical entertainment will be provided by the young and talented Nicholas and Cody Santas on the violin, performing renditions of your favorite holiday tunes.
The evening’s Silent Auction will again offer a variety of memory-making experiences and unique items. The featured package is “Tour & A Tasting”: next spring, be among the first to experience the newly re-interpreted guided tour and newly refurbished interior of the restored 1832 Indian Agency House, led by Site Director Destinee Udelhoven. Afterwards, the winning bidder and up to five special guests will enjoy stimulating, reflective conversation, fine wine and hors d’oeuvres in the Agency House front parlor, rearranged to protect all artifacts and to accommodate this special occasion. This package also includes an entertaining “kit” of six wine glasses, cheese spreaders and slate cheese board (all from Crate & Barrel), three bottles of wine, and two gourmet cheeses. Other items up for bids include one-of-a-kind collectibles such as a hand-pieced Lakota Sioux Tribe traditional-style star quilt, and a “Silver and Gold” package of antique jewelry and baubles. For a full listing of Silent Auction items, contact director Destinee Udelhoven at 742-6362. Pre-bidding by phone is allowed, with reserve prices set on all auction items.
All proceeds from the event will benefit local historic site and educational venue, the Historic Indian Agency House. Tickets are $25 per person ($20 for members of the Agency House Supporters group) and are available at the Portage Chamber of Commerce. You can also reserve your tickets by calling 742-6362.
