Founded in 1907, the University Women’s Club hosts a variety of events including Christmas at Hycroft. This highly-anticipated holiday affair, now in its 38th year, will take place November 18th until the 21st.
Fireplaces will be adorned with evergreen bows, crystal garlands will sparkle, and blue ribbon will abound as a part of this year’s Winter Wonderland theme. Local non-profits have been invited to setup in one of Hycroft mansion’s many rooms to showcase their organizations, while crafts and and culinary creations will be available for purchase from area artisans.
Christmas at Hycroft also includes a silent auction, cafe, raffles, and a special showing in the art gallery upstairs. Santa himself will be making an appearance on Saturday and Sunday.
Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for children 5-11, and children 5 and under are free. There is also a family rate of $25 for two adults and three children.
This is a very affordable way to not only get into the holiday spirit and have a head-start on your Christmas shopping, but to learn more about the University Women’s Club and their stunning home, Hycroft (which I will soon profile in a history piece).
