Prizes will also be awarded for the best hats in the categories of "Mad Hatter" and "Haute Chapeau."
A table preview and reception will begin at 11 a.m. and the luncheon, catered by the Red Geranium Restaurant, will begin at noon. Entertainment will include a style show presented by The Antique Showrooms in The Mews and a vignette from Lost in Yonkers performed by USI's New Harmony Theater. Lost in Yonkers will open the following night in New Harmony's historic Murphy Auditorium.
Individuals or groups interested in attending the Summer Hat Luncheon may sponsor tables for four or more. Tickets are $35 per person, which includes a $20 charitable gift benefiting Historic New Harmony's Bicentennial Project. The group's designated table captain is responsible for dressing the table with tablecloth, napkins, centerpiece, dinnerware, and table service.
