Beefsteak Society Dinner
Community Event
Date: Nov 9 2018
Time: 6:30 pm
Cost: $75.00/member; $85.00/non-member
Location: Navy Hall, 305 Ricardo Street, Niagara-on-the-Lake, ON, L0S 1J0
Join the Friends of Fort George and Parks Canada for our third annual fundraiser dinner which will be fashioned after the popular Sublime Beefsteak Society of England. The dinner will take place at Navy Hall National Historic Site on November 9, 2018 and will include a steak dinner, live music, an auction and great entertainment.
Started in the 1700's, the Beefsteak Society came to symbolize patriotic and liberal concepts of prosperity. Throughout the 19th century, the club




included royalty such as George IV, statesmen, military leaders, actors, artists such as William Hogarth, musicians and writers.
We hope you will join us for a special evening of food and merriment! We have D&T Classic Catering providing the dinner, and the Celtic Cross Duo will be providing musical entertainment for the evening. The Celtic Cross Duo features Tom Keefer (vocals/guitar/piano) and the classically trained Jane Bristol (vocals/violin). The duo have performed all over New York, Ontario, Pennsylvania and Virginia. Tom’s great interest in history and many connections to Niagara-on-the-Lake have made performing at Fort George very special.
There will also be a silent auction running throughout the evening, with lots of items that are perfect for Christmas gifts! As part of this year’s event, we will be auctioning off the position of honourary cannoneer for the 2019 New Year’s Day Levee! Bid for your chance to ring in the New Year with a bang!
The cost: $75 for members; $85 for non-members. Tickets must be reserved in advance as space is limited.
