This fall, Martini Madness blasts off with a space-age modern theme that looks to the future as it celebrates the past!

Join our fabulous event chairs, Mike Mahlstedt & Kyle Dutton and Libby Cagle & Lauren Taft, for a stellar evening that includes an artisan-made martini glass for each guest to select and take home, plus signature martinis courtesy Deep Eddy Vodka and delectable appetizers from Cordua Catering. All proceeds from Martini Madness benefit HCCC, allowing the Center to offer admission and a wide variety of programs free to the public.

Space out in the Cosmic Lounge, pose with friends in the photo booth, and take in the spectacular visuals created by local creative team, Paradox, as Peter Lucas spins groovy space-age vinyl.

*Costume Contest*
Guests are encouraged to participate in the party’s out-of-this-world theme by donning their chicest space-race attire (think ‘60s mod fashions, NASA, and all things outer space). Prizes will be awarded for best costumes at both the main party and late-night party.

*Late-Night Ticket*
The late-night ticket option allows guests to enjoy the party from 9:00 – 11:00 PM for a modest price. While this ticket does not include an artisan martini glass, an incredible selection of glasses will be available for purchase at the event.

Single Ticket: $150 (include an artisan martini glass)
HCCC Member Ticket: $125 (includes an artisan martini glass)
Late-Night Ticket: $50 (does not include glass; entry at 9:00 PM)
