The German American Steuben Parade Committee holds a Fundraising Gala to support the Parade. The Gala has been held in many different locations over the years including the Hornblower Infinity Yacht, Hilton and Marriott.
The Gala will be held at The Lighthouse at Chelsea Piers. The formal event will take place from 6pm-11pm. There will be chef stations sponsored by different German Restaurants, butcher shops and caterers in the metropolitan area. Each station will be offering tastings of their personal specialties. A seated dinner and an open bar is also included.
Music will be provided by Heimat Klänge. There will be a guest performance by Japanese Yodeler Takeo Ischi who lives in Germany. The Guest MC for the event will be Linda Schmidt from Fox Five News.
The Gala will also include a silent auction. The 2019 Auction features 33 items which is the most we have ever had. Items include a West Elm Chair and Side Table, an autographed FC Bayern Jersey, a Wempe clock, a Freywille Bangle, a beer garden furniture set and many more. You must be present to bid on auction pieces.
Tickets for the gala cost $200. VIP Tickets are $420. To order tickets please contact Nicole Miskiewicz via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or you can call 347-454-2269.
At the Gala as well as at the VIP Grandstands at the Parade a journal is given out. The journal features a history of the Parade, words from our Executive Committee and local representatives as well as advertisements from our sponsors. Advertisements are available in the journal.
