Annual Jubilee - Friday, December 1st

Tickets on sale through November 17th.

This year’s Landmark Society Annual Jubilee will take place at Rochester’s only Boutique Urban Inn, The Inn on Broadway, located at 26 Broadway on Friday, December 1st, 6pm.

Designed by architect Leon Stern, The Inn on Broadway was originally built in 1929 as the third location for the University Club of Rochester. The building has since been beautifully restored into the Inn as it stands today. A 25-room Urban Inn where modern luxury meets historic charm is surely a tribute to the city’s prestigious history that exudes the glamour and grandeur of the Flower City.

As in past years, the Jubilee will offer an assortment of silent auction experiences to bid on, hors d’ oeuvres, plated dinner and dessert provided by Tournedos, which has become Rochester’s premier steakhouse. The evening’s live musical entertainment will feature The Bob Sneider Trio with accomplished guest flutist and Landmark Society Trustee, Tim Forster, and world class singer Madeline Forster.

Don’t miss this special event to celebrate with us!
