Open to all ages and featuring heavy hors d’oeuvres, live music, an open bar and plenty of delicious Southsides, the Calcutta cocktail party will be held on the evening of April 20, 2018 at “Oakdene,” located at 1021 Greenspring Valley Road, just a half mile from Green Spring Station. Tickets are extremely limited and will most certainly sell out!
The Calcutta continues an entertaining tradition tied to the races that refers to a style of auction allowing you to “own” a race horse for the day (without any of the expenses) and win a portion of the pot if your horse hits the board. You can choose to either join a syndicate – pre-set are available upon purchasing your ticket(s) or at the Calcutta. A syndicate pools together funds from multiple syndicate members for greater buying power; or you can buy “Hat Tickets” at the Calcutta. A hat ticket will be drawn before each horse is auctioned off. The winning ticket holder will receive 10% of the hammer price of that horse.
100% of the proceeds from the Old Line Calcutta will benefit the Valleys Planning Council. For more than five decades, the VPC has been at the forefront of land use planning and preservation techniques in northwestern Baltimore County. Its noble mission is focused on conserving open space; protecting Baltimore County’s agricultural, natural, historic and scenic resources, and working to promote a balanced and rational use of the land for the benefit of present and future generations.
The Old Line Society is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded by Baltimore natives, Justin and Jeremy Batoff, to encourage social engagement and charitable giving amongst Baltimore’s young professionals. OLS aims at getting the new generation of young professionals in Baltimore to raise money while raising their glasses for local charities and the arts.
