Relive the Jazz Age at a Roaring 20s Gala Fundraiser at the Wood County Historical Center & Museum, 13660 County Home Road in Bowling Green on Saturday, Dec. 1 from 6 to 9 p.m.

Come together at this annual event to enjoy the ritzy festivities of a speakeasy with 1920’s-inspired hors d’oeuvers, cocktails and mocktails, live music, and a holiday gift courtesy of the Historical Society Gift Shop.

There will also be a silent auction featuring a variety of themed gift baskets with local goodies from artists, merchants, and restaurants at the event. Some of the items include: a zamboni ride and tickets to the Toledo Walleye, glass bowl from Toledo Museum of Art, and a House Jazz Concert courtesy of Jeffrey Halsey. An additional 50-50 raffle will also take place during the event.

Live entertainment will be provided by the BGSU Chamber Jazz Quartet.

The gala will take place throughout the museum, where visitors can have the last tour of the WWI exhibit “Over There! Send Word, the Wood County Boys are Coming!”  and“The Return to Normalcy: A Life of Leisure in Wood County.”

Gala tickets are $60/person. For tickets, please call 419-352-0967 or purchase online at
