November 21, 2018 – (Key West, FL). Cruise back to the 40s at Key West Art & Historical Society’s Third Annual “Back In Time” Fundraising Bash on December 5

Have you ever dreamed of stepping into a magic time machine and journeying back to the days of Bogart, big bands, victory gardens, epic musical productions, and the Greatest Generation? December 5 is your chance to embark on an evening of Swing Era nostalgic fun and glamour at Key West Art & Historical Society’s “Back In Time – Cruise to the 40s” Custom House preservation fundraiser, kicking off with a 5:00pm cocktail party on the sweeping veranda of the Custom House Museum, 281 Front Street, and continuing at the Margaritaville Resort and Marina’s Grand Ballroom – magically transformed into the “S.S. KWAHS” luxury cruise liner.

Bid on really swell silent auction items, dance to the sounds of The Southernmost Brass Band, compete for best-dressed prizes, and raise a rousing toast to Brewster Chamberlin, author, historian, and recipient of the 2018 Scotti Merrill Preservation Award – an annual accolade that honors an individual who has dedicated him or herself to preserving the cultural heritage of the Florida Keys, with special emphasis on the historic Custom House, now celebrating its 127thanniversary. 1940s attire is encouraged. For tickets visit KWAHS.ORG (click “Tickets”) or contact Danielle Holliday at 305-295-6616 x 114.
