A Night at the Mansion is an evening of exploration and creativity hosted by Arts for All Nevada.
-Guests will be greeted by Jane Lake, one of the original owners of the Lake Mansion. Jane (played by local historian Sharon Hoening-Bear) will be on hand to offer insights into the history of the Lake Mansion and the various people who lived in the Mansion.
-Guests will enjoy passed appetizers prepared and served by students in the Washoe County School District’s Culinary Arts Program at the Academy of Arts, Careers, and Technologies and live music by musicians from UNR. A wine bar will be available throughout the evening
-Local distilleries, including Ferino, 10 Torr, Seven Troughs, and Frey Ranch will dazzle with their creative versions of a signature cocktail for the Lake Mansion. Guests will have the opportunity to sip, sample, and vote for their favorite.
-Guests will explore their creative side by decorating pumpkins in the Lake Mansion's classroom with guidance from Arts for All Nevada's teaching artists.
-Participate in a silent auction of autumnal wreaths, topiaries, and other handcrafted art pieces created by local artists and craftspeople.
All proceeds from the evening will support the Artist in Residency Program, placing teaching artists into special education classrooms through Northern Nevada
