Fairytale Town mixes the zaniness of the Mad Hatter with the elementary logic of Sherlock Holmes in its second annual offsite fundraising event: Mad Hatter Meets Sherlock Holmes on Thursday, May 8, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Held at the Masonic Temple in Downtown Sacramento, the party will feature chocolate delicacies and desserts, wine and food tastings, live music, live and silent auctions and a raffle with exciting prizes.
The highlight of the evening will be tastings by wineries, restaurants, chocolatiers and dessert makers.
Guests are encouraged to get into the spirit of the evening by wearing thematic cocktail attire, costumes and mad hats. A costume contest for the “Mad-dest Hat” will be held at the party, and guests can commemorate the night at a thematic photo booth. A string duo will serenade guests throughout the evening.
Brad Peters of Hock Farm Craft and Provisions will serve as the evening’s honorary chair and will demonstrate how to make a specially designed cocktail inspired by the event.
“Mad Hatter Meets Sherlock Holmes is a festive evening that brings our region’s talented wineries, restaurants and dessert purveyors under one roof,” said Mauriah Conway-Spatola, event committee chair and Fairytale Town board member.
Proceeds from Mad Hatter Meets Sherlock Holmes Fundraiser will support Fairytale Town’s programs and park improvements.
Tickets are $50 per person and are available for purchase at fairytaletown.org or at Fairytale Town’s box office. For more information visit the website or call (916) 808-7462.
