Indiana Landmarks holding rescue party

INDIANAPOLIS —  

 

Just like saving endangered species, saving endangered places takes money, as well as time and attention.

From 6 to 11 p.m. April 27, the second annual Rescue Party at Indiana Landmarks Center benefits the organization’s Endangered Places program. Indiana Landmarks Center is a repurposed and restored church at 1201 Central Ave., Indianapolis.

The evening includes the announcement of the 10 Most Endangered for 2013, a presentation of the annual Cook Cup for Outstanding Restoration, an Iron Chef-style cocktail competition, a custom Sun King brew, a live auction of one-of-a-kind experiences in historic places, an art show, dancing to the Impalas, and hors d’oeuvre buffets and desserts.

The cocktail competition, staged by the U.S. Bartenders’ Guild and sponsored by Templeton Rye Whiskey, will follow a preliminary round of judging. The ticketed playoff on April 8 will produce three finalists. Delicia, a new restaurant at 5215 N. College Ave., will host the early round. The audience at Rescue Party will get to taste each finalist’s creation, and audience and judges scores will determine a winner.

A custom Rescue Party beer by Sun King Brewing will debut, after an unusual creative process. Sun King commissioned Time for Three, a string trio, to create music to inspire its brewers in crafting the Rescue beer.

During the Rescue Party, artist Brock Cagann will be working on a painting in the center’s 1201 Gallery, where his show “Coloring Historic Indiana” will be on display.

The live auction features getaways in historic places, with special “can’t be bought” additions including tours of private sites not open to the public. One unusual auction item is a chance to sing with The Impalas at the event. The evening closes with dancing to The Impalas.

Tickets are $75 each and attire is festive casual. For information, call Indiana Landmarks at 639-4534 or visit the website at www.IndianaLandmarks.org.
