Batavians invited to celebrate at Anniversary Gala

Wed September 25, 2019

BATAVIA, IL – 2019 marks the Batavia Park District’s 50th Anniversary since the 1969 inception. Although the District has been celebrating all year long with ‘throwback’ programs and events, park challenges, and sharing archived photos and fun facts on social media and throughout the Fun Guide, the November 2nd 50th Anniversary Gala is the pinnacle of the anniversary festivities.

The public is invited to join the current and former staff, community leaders, and key residents that have been a big part of the Park District story,  at Shannon Hall, located at 14 N. Van Buren Street, on Saturday, November 2 from 7- 11 pm for a night full of glitz and glamour, memories and dancing, and more. The Gala is a semi-formal attire event and a cash bar will be available. The evening will also include a special ceremony honoring individuals who have helped shape what the Park District is today. 

Tickets are $30 per individual or $50 per couple. Each ticket includes heavy appetizers, one alcoholic drink ticket, a champagne toast, a collectible ornament, and dessert. Pre-registration is required by October 31 and the event is for ages 21+. Thank you to the celebration sponsors, Garland & Lace, and Enticing Cuisine.
