Repairs Completed since the 2019 Gala
Theme and Decorations
Pillars of Support is the theme for the 2020 Gala. The American Legion venue will be transformed into a Mediterranean Experience complete with columns and greenery. Dress in your favorite comfortable party clothes or even better a toga, and plan to sit with friends at the tables seating 8-10 people. Even the menu will reflect the food of that region.
The Dessert Auction
The Dessert Auction is a signature event at the Ruth’s House Gala. This artful display of tempting cakes, cookies, pies, and other sweets from local bakeries, as well as local home bakers, kicked off the evening’s activities. As the auction drew to a close the friendly bidding wars heated up until the lucky winners were declared. As is the custom, winners then shared their bounty with the rest of the people at their table. Since its inception the Dessert Auction has provided a significant portion of the monies raised during the Gala.
