The event took place at the Saranac Brewery on Varick St. in Utica.


People came out dressed in twenties attire and enjoyed music and food.


The theme of the party celebrates the end of prohibition.


The Saranac Brewery was the first local brewery to sell alcohol after the prohibition.


The party serves as a fundraiser for St. Elizabeth Medical Center.


John Forbes, vice president of philanthropy at MVHS, says he loves giving back to the community.

"It makes me feel great, you know. It's very special,” Forbes said. “And in a place like this, we are helping our friends and families, and our neighbors and ultimately ourselves too. We are trying to do the best we can to provide the best patient care possible, and this helps."

All proceeds raised from the event go towards St. Elizabeth Medical Center.
