Press Release, Maison Albion

ALBION – Maison Albion will host its annual Fête de Nöel gala on December 10th benefiting Preserving The Pillars Foundation.

The black-tie event will take place from 7 to 10 p.m. in the glamorous ballroom and all throughout the mansion. Ashley’s Culinary Creations Catering will serve appetizers, a Gilded Age Buffet Menu and desserts from Pretty Sweet Bakery, along with live music, dancing, and entertainment for guests to enjoy. This event is designed to welcome the holiday season and raise money for a worthwhile cause.

Fête de Nöel, A Gilded Age Gala, is a turn of the century gala for community members to celebrate the holiday season. Guests can expect turn of the century entertainment including ladies maids and footmen, local opera soprano singer Hannah, and dance band XOXO Pop Band, opulent food and culinary delights from Ashley’s Culinary Creations, event design by Maison Productions and refreshments from Mixologie. Guests will be entertained by costumed staff  and historic acts.

All of the proceeds raised will go to the Preserving the Pillars Foundation. The foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to the restoration and preservation of historic properties in Western New York for the enjoyment of generations to come.

Maison Albion is encouraging community members to get into the holiday spirit by dressing in Gilded Age Attire. Celebrating a time in the world where opulence and rapid economic growth ruled in the United States between 1870-1900, coinciding with the La Belle Epoque in France.  Maison Albion was built during the Gilded Age.

Gather your friends and family, and  pull your “carriage” up to the front of the pillars of Maison Albion to be welcomed by footman and have your “carriage” parked for you. Rain, sleet, or snow will not prevent us from celebrating the holiday season at Fête de Nöel.

Tickets are $50 per person and can be purchased at
