Dinner, dancing, spirits and a live auction will highlight the second annual “Snow Ball” on Saturday, January 26 at the iconic Spring Hill Lodge. Sponsored by the North Berwick Historical Society, the “Ball” is open to the public with tickets priced at just $65 per couple, or $35 per person.

“Last year’s Snow Ball was such a big success that we’ve brought it back with a few new features to make it even better,” said Melissa Johnson-Pierce, the event coordinator. “It’s a great opportunity to beat the winter doldrums with a fun-filled night out among a great group of friends and neighbors.”

Kicking off at 6 p.m., with a full bar of beer, wine and cocktails plus cheese and crackers, the “Ball” will feature music throughout the night by well-known DJ Stevie J. A full course buffet dinner is being carefully crafted by Spring Hill executive chef Mark Vogelman. Delectable desserts will top off the culinary delights.

Both a live auction and a penny auction will give ball-goers the opportunity to get some great values on sought-after products and services. Among the items to be auctioned are Patriot and Red Sox memorabilia, liquor baskets, Budweiser carts, hand crafted items, massages and more. Additional items will added to the auction list throughout the month.

Dancing will follow the auction with Stevie J. playing requests from his massive collection of music of every era. The bar will remain open.

More information can be obtained by contacting Johnson-Pierce at 207-251-0188 or email johnsonfh@maine.rr.com. The deadline to buy tickets is Monday, January 21, but there is a good possibility the event will be sold out earlier.

Funds from the Snow Ball will be used to help build the historical society’s pole barn, which is being constructed on Meeting House Road as a future education center. More than $40,000 has already been raised for the barn, with another $20,000 still needed.
