Rustic Night 2018 January 8, 2019 11:55 pm

On September 15 Rustic Canyon Park was boogying all night long when about 130 people rocked the scene at the annual Rustic Night party/ fundraiser. It was fun to see so many people out in their 50’s outfits, jiving and swinging to the music and mingling around. There was plenty of food including an Airstream milkshake van!

As the wine flowed, the guests danced to the mu- sic of the Johnny Hatton trio and vocalist Rosann Limeres. They laughed checking out the vintage cars brought in to create an authentic 1950’s mood.
The plentiful food was thanks to Angel City Food, Pono Burger and Sweet Rose Creamery.
The tally isn’t complete but it is estimated that about $80,000 was raised to help continue the restoration work at the park and recreational center.

In addition, the City has matched the $40,000 paint budget with in-kind work and pushing through work orders and shepherding the projects through city departments.
They are hard at work now to finish the window restoration project and painting the historical facility.
The goal is to have the Uplifters fully restored by May 2023 when the build- ing turns 100 years old. Can you imagine what that party will look like?
