Take a trip back in time and raise funds for the Yolo County Historical Museum at the Gibson House Christmas Gala from 6 to 9 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 29. The event will take place at historic Beamer Place, 712 Main St. in downtown Woodland. Built in 1892 by R.H. Beamer, the building was renovated in the early 1980s and currently houses offices and shops.

The Gala will feature an auction of decorated trees, wreaths, centerpieces, ornaments and gift baskets created by local crafters and decorators. There will be holiday music, hors d’oeuvres and local wine poured by Route 3.

“It’s a delightful way to kick off the holiday season and do some local shopping,” a news release said.

Tickets for the Gala are $35 per person or $60 per couple and may be purchased at The Gifted Penguin, 716A Main St.; the Gibson House, 512 Gibson Road (open Tuesdays through Fridays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.; 530-666-1045); or by calling Meg Stallard at 530-666-0154. Tickets must be purchased by Sunday, Nov. 25.

The mission of the museum is to preserve and protect the historical heritage and culture of Yolo County. Income from the Christmas celebration supports the museum’s programs, including school tours for students from throughout the county. Each year, more than 1,200 students tour the house and grounds, learning about life in early Yolo County.
