Once again this year, WXXI members have the chance to receive the upcoming season of Downton Abbey on DVD or Blu-Ray before the commercial release date! Pledge $120 or $10-a-month and look forward to receiving your discs in early January, weeks before anyone can buy them in stores. Then you can Lord Grantham it over your friends (or invite them over to watch). We also have a magnificent Downton-themed extravaganza planned for New Year's Eve at the Century Club...
WXXI's Downton Abbey New Year's Gala - $250 per person
Experience the grandeur of Downton Abbey as you join WXXI for an evening of Downton-themed fun including; a multi-course, white-gloved dinner service complete with a period-inspired menu and wine pairings; period dance and musical performances; whiskey and scotch tastings; and more!
Location: The Century Club of Rochester, 566 East Ave, Rochester, NY 14607
Date: December 31, 2014 5:30 PM- 10:00 PM
Black tie and/or period dress suggested!
At $335 per person (or $650 for a couple), you can attend the gala and join us for a 20’s themed New Year’s after-party at the Strathallan from 10pm to 1am.
At $1000 per couple, you can look forward to a room for 2 at the Strathallan after all the revelry. This includes breakfast and a Downton-themed gift basket in your room.
Not enough Downton? Then consider the $1200 level of support. Along with all the rest, we’ll add two tickets to a sneak preview screening of episode 1 of season 5 at the Little Theater on December 28th at 11am, followed by an English-inspired brunch at 2 Vine. And you can also look forward to Michael Lasser’s ‘Music of Downton Abbey’ concert on Jan. 4th at Asbury First United Methodist Church. With help from Cindy Miller and Alan Jones, Michael will be exploring the music of the Downton era, from WW1 to the 1920s.
