Jack London and his wife Chairman loved to entertain other writers, artists, musicians, and like-minded “bohemians” at their home – now Jack London State Historic Park – in Glen Ellen, CA.
Jack London Park Partners will celebrate their unconventional spirit at the Sept. 23 fundraising gala, “Jack’s Bohemian Groove.” Attendees will experience what a visit to their “Beauty Ranch” might have been like for guests of the Londons.
The evening will begin at 6 p.m. in the Eucalyptus Grove with liberal libations and a variety of interactive artistic activities. Listen or sing along with local musical ensembles. Watch a painter capture a live model on canvas or make your own drawing. Listen to poets and craft your own poetry, inspired by the surrounding beauty.
Guests will be welcomed to winery ruins with songs and stories by songwriter John Elliott. Later in the evening, jazz songbird Sony Holland will also entertain.
Proceeds of the event support Jack London State Historic Park, which has been operated and funded since 2012 by Jack London Park Partners, one of the first non-profit organizations to be entrusted with management of a state park on behalf of the people of California.For more information and tickets, visit https://jacklondonpark.com/events/jack-london-gala-2023/.
