Food Samaritans (AAP) will host a dazzling IndepenDANCE Day party and fundraiser on Tuesday, July 4, 2017 at the historic O’Donnell House, perched high on the mountainside above the Palm Springs Art Museum, at 412 W. Tahquitz Canyon Way. The event begins at 7:30 pm, and the City of Palm Springs’ fireworks display will commence at approximately 9:15 pm. DJ Baz will play a range of upbeat dance songs (some with a patriotic twist) and guests will be treated to a ‘good ole’ 4th of July Bar-B-Q with burgers, grilled chicken, and more. Tickets for this event are $150, which includes an open bar, barbeque, entertainment, and valet parking.
“This is our seventh year offering this unique and fun-filled way to observe our nation’s birthday,” said Mark Anton, CEO and Executive Director of AAP – Food Samaritans. “This year we decided to step it up a notch by adding dancing. We are thrilled that DJ Baz will be with us this year. Once again, we are extremely grateful for the generosity of Dr. Tracy Conrad and Dr. Paul Marut for allowing us to hold this fundraiser and fireworks viewing party from this amazing location.”
Completed in 1925, the O’Donnell House served as the winter home of oilman Thomas O’Donnell and his wife, Dr. Winnifred Willis Jenny, a well-known Long Beach osteopath. The two-story Mediterranean Revival-Monterey residence remained the highest mountainside home in Palm Springs until the 1960s. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2011.
