Waterfront’s Cargill Hall Hosts ‘Remember When’ Gala to Support La Crosse County Historical Society

The theme of the gala is the 1950s

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) – Community members show off their poodle skirts and retro outfits in support of the La Crosse County Historical Society.

The theme for the gala at the Cargill Waterfront Hall in La Crosse is the 1950s.

The fundraiser includes a cocktail, dinner and auction.

The LCHS executive director said the society raises funds for its operating costs through ticket sales, auction items and donations.

These dollars will help support the Hixon House and the La Crosse Area Heritage Center.

“Really, for the staff, it’s a lot of work,” said chief executive Peggy Derrick. “The highlight is a wonderful evening. This is very fun. I think it’s about making friends and raising awareness about our organization and what they do.

Derrick says the LCHS sold 120 tickets for the fundraiser.

After expenses, she says she hopes the gala will raise more than $15,000.
