Important news about the upcoming Bray Dinner and Convention
- Dear Friends of the Libertarian Party of Utah,
Today I, along with Charlie Bonsall and Bill Bohmholdt picked the venue for
our upcoming Karl Bray Memorial Dinner, which will follow the LP Utah State
The Bray dinner has traditionally followed our yearly state conventions and
been our biggest social event and fundraiser for the LP Utah. After
discussing and visiting several potential venues, we have decided to have
the event at The Organ Loft.
Coincidentally, The Organ Loft is run by Lawrence Bray - but apparently, no
known connection between Larry and Carl.
The Organ Loft offers a friendly atmosphere, unique surroundings and
courteous staff - the perfect setting for the ultimate entertainment
In addition to a wonderful buffet dinner, The Organ Loft will provide us
with a talented organist who will perform a wide variety of music from the
sounds of Big Bands, Swing, Latin, and your favorite popular tunes for
dining and dancing to the 34-rank Wurlitzer Theatre Pipe Organ.
THE ORGAN LOFT also features a State-Of-The-Art Sound and music reproducing
system which will see that we all hear the speeches, awards and musical
entertainment, regardless of where you are sitting.
The world-renowned Organ Loft Wurlitzer has attracted people from
thousands of miles to listen to the lively sounds of the organ, noted as one
of the richest and most exciting ensemble pipe organs in the country. The
Organ Loft reflects quality and a variety of entertainment.
In addition to allowing the LP to bring in our own liquor and beer, the
facility also has a private patio, garden area for any stargazers or those
who would like to enjoy a smoke or a drink out doors.
We will be able to keep the price of the event to $25, but we need to get as
many folks booked before March as we can. Please call Bill Bohmholdt right
away to reserve your spot. If you are a monthly donor, you are entitled to
one free admission. However, please call Bill to reserve your spot anyway.
We need an accurate head count ASAP.
