Grappone Center

The second annual New Year’s Eve gala held at Grappone Conference Center will be Dec. 31 from 7 p.m. to midnight. The theme this year will be “Midnight in Paris” and guests will experience a night that feels like they’re immersed in the city of light.

This year, Grappone Conference Center has partnered with the American Cancer Society with a portion of the proceeds from ticket sales benefiting the organization.

Tickets for the event are $85 which includes appetizers, dinner, dessert, dancing with DJ Nazzy and a champagne toast at midnight. The adjoining Courtyard Marriott is offering a special overnight rate for $99 for those guests who want to take the elevator home.

Chef Trish Taylor will be impressing partygoers with her unique and delicious food, offered in a grand buffet style. Items on the menu include brie and raspberry wrapped in phyllo, apple with fig jam wrapped in prosciutto, endive with mascarpone, currants and toasted almonds, halibut fillet meuniere baked in cream with fresh herbs and lemon, and beaufort topped petite tenderloin filet wrapped in bacon with wild mushroom demi-glace. The Grappone Conference Center sources much of its food from local farms and offers fresh and organic options on the menu; not only does it taste delicious, but it’s promoting the farm to table relationship that so many small businesses rely on to survive.

After dinner and dessert, guests will be encouraged to hit the dance floor with music through the decades with DJ Nazzy. Close to midnight complimentary champagne toasts will be served and the countdown begins to ring in the new year.
