Seventy-five years ago the workers who brought the Pensacola Dam from a dream to reality were not only sipping their moonshine on Whiskey Point, they were rapidly closing in on their task. In recognition of their contribution to the Grand Lake we enjoy today, the South Grand Lake Chamber is dedicating their annual event as a salute to a truly remarkable feat.
While the location of the salute will be complete with all the modern day yacht club amenities, the operation will be hosted in a 1930’s setting when drinking and gambling establishments were definitely found behind closed doors and subject to police raids from time-to-time.
Activities include a live and silent auction featuring Dam Site memorabilia and other items donated by the Grand Lake business community.
Other plans include Grand Shine at the Bootlegger’s Ball, but a full jazzy swing band will be performing, poker girls plus craps table, roulette tables as well as black jack tables for your enjoyment and entertainment for amusement only, jail house photo booth with props, great appetizers provided by Cherokee Yacht Club and of course, live auction items will all be part of the soiree – that is until the party gets busted by the fuzz.
Tickets are $20 each and can be purchased now email us at [email protected] or call 918-782-3214 and get the password. The ball will begin at 6:00 PM at Cherokee Yacht Club, 33152 Browning Lane, Cleora, OK.
