On November 9th, the sleek and modern Elliott Museum will be transported back in time some 70 years when it becomes the setting for Thanks for the Memories: A Celebration of the 1940s, Bob Hope, Frances Langford, the USO, Big Band Music, Swing Dance, and Golf!  Celebrating the Elliott’s “Bob Hope, An American Treasure” exhibit, this fun party will take you back to another era.  Whether you’re “In the Mood for Love” or swinging to the beat of the “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy”, you can dance the night away to the 40s sound of the FDO-Big Swingin’ Band. Try swing dance lessons or party in a USO Canteen with fun 40s food and an open bar. There will be prizes for the best 1940s costumes. Our Cigarette Girl will have raffle tickets available, and you can bid on our silent auction items. A WWII-era tank will stand guard while you pose with your guests for photos in our beautiful 1947 Packard.  

1947 Packard – Elliott Museum Collection

 

 

Since Stuart’s own Frances Langford is synonymous with the music of that era, it will be a particularly nostalgic evening for long-time Treasure Coast residents. You will enjoy the additions to the Bob Hope exhibit from the Elliott’s own Frances Langford collection.

“Bob Hope: An American Treasure”, on exhibit through November 26th, is a traveling show from the World Golf Hall of Fame in St. Augustine. The exhibit features many snippets of Hope’s long career, and many artifacts from his personal life. The exhibit was produced with the help of the Bob & Dolores Hope Foundation.   The Presenting sponsor is Strategic Retirement Group.
