Sojourner House's most anticipated annual event returns for a fourth year on Friday, November 7.

Inspired by "Mad Men" and the height of The Rat Pack, when SinatraSammy Davis Jr., and Dean Martin sold out shows in Vegas on a nightly basis, this Masquerade Ball will transport you back in time to experience a slice of American culture at its best. Featuring entertainment by Chifferobe including the full 17-piece Sinatra Tribute: Chris Jason and his Orchestra and performances from Rhode Island’s only vintage dance troupe, The TropiGals

Graciously hosted by the Biltmore Hotel in the spectacular Grand Ballroom, this creative semi-formal event boasts live music and dancing, decadent hors d'oeuvres, colorful signature drinks, and a large silent auction full of holiday gift ideas.  

Sojourner House’s annual gala was featured in Rhode Island Monthly in 2013 and noted among the “Best Halloween Parties in Rhode Island” by GoLocalProv in 2012.
