Just a quick note that I’m still looking for contributors to the evening’s entertainment! Skits, songs, scholarly work, demonstrations of Sport and Skill in keeping with the evening’s theme, etc. Please comment here or e-mail to

In addition, we typically have an auction and a raffle during the evening. Both help support the Gala, and make it possible for folks to attend on “scholarship” who would not otherwise be able to do so. If you are an artist, writer, collector, etc. and have an item you would like to donate, please do let me know!


I have been speaking to some lovely people as organizer of this year’s Gaslight Gala. The title of this post is taken from a conversation I had with a long-attending individual who called to reserve her spot. She told me how excited she iss that Sherlock Holmes is so popular in our culture these days, with movies, television shows, and books new and old, and used the phrase above.

I have also spoken with the lovely folks at The Manhattan Club to discuss our plans for the evening. They are pleased as ever to have us and I can reassure all that our usual arrangements will be maintained.

And I have spoken with attendees who wish to participate in our evening’s entertainment, and am excited to be able to promise a blend of action, humor, music, and scholarship in our program. We are a well-rounded bunch with a lot of relevant interests! I still need toasts around the theme of Adventure, though, so please contact me with your ideas! I can be reached through the comments on this blog or at As we draw closer to the event, I am so excited to see you all and share this celebration with you.
