SAMA garden party to feature horses and hounds

LIGONIER — The Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art at Ligonier Valley will incorporate horses and hounds to enliven its 13th annual Garden Party.

Organizers are anticipating a good response when “The Thrill of the Hunt for Art” opens at 5 p.m. May 31 at the facility at 1 Boucher Lane, Ligonier.

Live music, elegant cuisine, silent and live auctions and several hunt-themed activities will combine to make this one of the museum’s most enjoyable events.

The event is open to the public, but reservations must be made by May 21.

Cost is $125 per person.
