Ruthmere has built a reputation over the past several years for unique gala fundraisers. The 2021 Ruthmere gala will not disappoint with First Night at the Aria! The Hotel Elkhart renovation project has captured the attention of the entire community. What is being done to Elkhart’s beloved tallest landmark, and how will it be given new life for the next 100 years? You can be the FIRST to find out this summer at First Night at the Aria: A Ruthmere Event!

By holding the inaugural event at the new Hilton Tapestry Collection Hotel Elkhart, attendees to First Night at the Aria will explore Elkhart’s first boutique hotel, dine on the ninth floor “Room on Top of the City,” and kick up their heels in the chic Aria Ballroom. Entertainment will feature the powerhouse vocals of the Janet Hines-Norris Band, and dinner service will offer a gourmet menu from Navarre Hospitality. Underwriters will be treated to a VIP pre-party from 6-7pm, but that is just the "first" of an evening filled with surprises!

Attire is formal, black tie optional. For questions regarding your reservation, call Jennifer Johns at 574-264-0330 ext. 104.
