The Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art at Ligonier Valley will have an “Alice in Wonderland” theme for its 18th annual Garden Party on July 27, 2019.

A journey down the rabbit hole is planned for this year’s Garden Party at the Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art at Ligonier Valley.

Guests are invited to get as mad as a hatter for the 18th annual fundraiser on July 27, this year with an “Alice in Wonderland” theme.

The event will begin at 4 p.m. with a champagne and hors d’oeuvres reception in the SAMA gallery at 1 Boucher Lane, Ligonier Township.

Guests will have the opportunity to view the museum’s featured exhibition, “The View from My Easel: Pastel Landscapes of the East Coast,” with pastel works by New Jersey-based artist Stan Sperlak.

The exhibition features approximately 65 pieces inspired by the landscapes of South Jersey, Delaware and Maryland.

Following the reception, guests will make their way to the Ligonier Country Club, where they will be greeted by “Alice in Wonderland characters” and enjoy cocktails, gourmet cuisine, music by The Rick Purcell Band and flamingo croquet. Live and silent auction items will include artwork, antiques, collectibles, garden accessories and gift baskets.

“Imagine peering through the looking glass and stepping into a wonderland of exciting entertainment. That is what you will experience at this year’s ‘Alice In Wonderland’ Garden Party,” says Kristin Miller, SAMA-Ligonier Valley site coordinator. “We have an enchanting evening planned for our guests that will provide an array of lively music, charming games, beautiful auction items and much more.”

Garden party tickets are $125. Reservations are needed by July 19.

Sponsorships and advertising opportunities are available.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
