      Western Reserve Historical Society
“Somewhere in Time”


    Somewhere in Time was an inaugural benefit for what the Western Reserve Historical Society plans to be an annual event, with each prospective party highlighting a different decade.
    The Roaring’20s came to life once again, with some 150 or so guests wearing costumes of the era. Feathered headbands and ropes of pearls were de rigueur for the ladies while the gents sported fedoras and pin-striped suits. Cleveland Institute of Music students’ Conservatory Jazz played during a VIP reception and dinner in the Bingham-Hanna Mansion, its entrance transformed into a speakeasy façade. The two-tone green 1929 Jordan, the first automobile marketed to women, was the glamorous backdrop for partygoers posing for souvenir photos. A Chinese auction was displayed en route to the rotunda that resembled an intimate supper club, its walls adorned with Kokoon Arts Club posters.
    Sammy’s Catering provided hearty hors d’oeuvres, an elegant bar of luscious oysters-on-the-half-shell and created specialty drinks including a Yoo-Hooville martini, made with the chocolate soda introduced in the 1920s, and a martini with cherry Kool-Aid, debuted in 1927. Entertainment featured vocalist Sherena Wynn and the D.O.C. Unit band, the Get Hep Swing Dancers and dance and costume contests.
    Proceeds from the benefit were expected to be about $30,000. STORY AND PHOTOGRAPHS BY KATHRYN RIDDLE
