The David Davis Mansion will present The Judge's Jubilee 2016, an evening to honor the political legacy of U.S. Supreme Court Justice David Davis, from 6pm to 9pm, Thursday, October 20th.
The event, to be held at Lakeside Country Club, Bloomington, IL, is a benefit for the David Davis Mansion Foundation which supports education programs, research, restoration and other needs of the David Davis Mansion Historic Site.
Funds raised from this year's event will be used to help replace the roof on the Lincoln era Barn/Stable located behind the Mansion. The Barn/Stable, built in 1857, pre-dates the current Mansion and housed Lincoln's horse and buggy during his frequent visits to see his good friend, David Davis.
The event will feature wine and beer tastings, hors d'oeuvres, cash bar, silent auction, light entertainment, and an opportunity to learn about a lesser known side of David Davis.
Tickets for the event are $65 for one or $100 for two and may be purchased at the Mansion Visitor Center at 1000 Monroe Drive, Bloomington, IL, or online at daviddavismansion.org. The Mansion and Visitor Center are open 9am-4pm Wednesday-Saturday. For more information call 309-828-1084.
