75th Anniversary Gala
The biggest social event of the winter will celebrate the 75th anniversary of Cranmore, hosted at the official lodging sponsor of our anniversary year, The Red Jacket Resort in North Conway, NH.
Join us for cocktails, dinner and dancing to a swing band. Dress in vintage 1930’s garb or ski attire, or your finest evening attire.
Tickets are $99 per person. Tickets include a cocktail hour with appetizers and a cash bar sponsored by the Red Jacket and music from the Alpiner Oom-Pah Band; and 3-course Austrian-themed dinner with a celebratory glass of wine. Evening includes live music and dancing with the Chris Humphrey Big Band. A portion of proceeds benefit the Herbert Schneider Memorial Fund.
Guests will receive a goodie bag including a commemorative engraved wine glass, a 75th anniversary poster, pin and a copy of Tom Eastman's new book, "The History of Cranmore Mountain" (one book per couple).
