UTICA, N.Y. -- If you're still making your Friday night plans -- look no further than a trip to 1933. That's when prohibition ended.

The Mohawk Valley Health System is celebrating at the FX Matt Brewery Friday night.

The party is a fundraiser used to help the hospitals provide the best care for their patients.

This is their 11th year for the party, and around 400 people are expected to attend the event, which also features a silent auction.

“You come in here, people will be dressed up like the 20s, the roaring 20s. Some women in flapper dresses, and you come in, it's definitely a celebration. It's a fun environment. I think we have four or five bands here, great food, so lots of great music and dancing, and of course some great Saranac Beer,” said John Forbes, the VP of philanthropy at MVHS.

If you are interested in going there are tickets available at the door. The price is $50 a ticket, and doors open at 6 p.m.
