NIAGARA FALLS – A night of entertainment that will help support the Isaiah 61 Project is happening downtown this coming weekend.
It will be the city’s premiere “White Party,” an event where attendees dress all in white and raise money for a charity.
“It is a celebration of the city’s resurgence and all the efforts everybody’s been doing to bring Niagara Falls back,” said organizer Rick Crogan, who also runs the Niagara Falls Music & Art Festival.
The event will be held from 7 p.m. to 1 a.m. Saturday in the Niagara Falls Conference & Event Center, 101 Old Falls St.
Crogan said he wanted to hold an event to get people downtown in either the spring or winter.
The event will feature live music and a silent auction, with all the proceeds benefiting the Isaiah 61 Project, which provides training in the skilled trades while rehabilitating distressed properties in the city.
“We’re making a really fun night of entertainment,” Crogan said.
At 7 p.m., there will be an hour of champagne and hors d’oeuvres. At 9, the Betty Crockski and the Great Foodini food trucks will be outside the conference center.
Live music will be provided by Randle & the Late Night Scandals along with DJ Medison and an acoustic performance by Nick Spacone.
There also will be performances by some special guests, said Crogan, who said he is planning to make this an annual event.
Carriage rides and pedicab rides will be available outside the event.
The announcement of this year’s Niagara Falls Music & Art Festival Commitment to the Arts Award also will take place during the party.
Tickets are $25 and may be purchased online at www.festivalatthefalls.com; Pi Pastry Shop, 2569 Military Road, Town of Niagara; Deal Realty in Lewiston; and all locations of Spiritually Rooted.
The Music & Art Festival is June 20 through 22 on Old Falls Street.
