“Joe Sent Me” turns former library at One East Benton into 1920s speakeasy for Aurora Historical Society fundraiser
The Aurora Historical Society spring fundraiser will be an evening in a 1920s speakeasy. With a hot and cool jazz band, refreshments and a cash bar, visitors will take their stand against the 18th Amendment in the same way as millions of Americans did during Prohibition — only this time no laws will be broken.
The event, titled “Joe Sent Me,” will be Friday, March 10, 2017 from 5:30-9pm in the lower level lounge at One East Benton, formerly the 1904 Aurora Public Library but now the home of Support Techs, a business support firm.
The password to be given at the door is “Joe sent me”.
Cost is $45 per person, or $40 for historical society members. Reservations are a must and can be made online at www.aurorahistory.net
