The Alpine Historical Society in conjunction with The Sutton Activity Coordination Board sponsor this event. The Coal Miner’s Ball, will be held at the Alpine Inn at mile 61 of the Glenn Highway, in Sutton, Saturday, April 25th.

The Coal Miners Ball is The Alpine Historical Society’s largest fund raising event of the year.  It is designed to honor those that came before us with a Old Timers Induction to Hall of Fame, entertainment, a potlatch, dinner, dancing and door prizes.

The Alpine Historical Society has been managing the Alpine Historical Park since 1984, when land exchanged between Phil O’Neill and the Mat-Su Borough.  The Park is uniquely situated directly on the Glenn Highway at mile post 61.6 and Chickaloon Way in Sutton Alaska.  The local Glenn Highway National Scenic Byways Committee has selected The Historic O’Neill House to represent this area as the Glenn Highway Scenic Byway Visitors Center.  This important Historic Park is 23 minutes from Palmer and a beautiful one hour drive from Anchorage.

The tax deductible contribution is $12.50 advance, $15.00 at the door, per person, children 5 and under free.  Tickets include Dinner, induction, entertainment and door prizes.  Doors open at 4PM. This year’s main event entertainment The Bruce Finlay’s Black N’ Tan Band starts at 9PM.  Proceeds from this event will provide local activities for young people and families in the Sutton – Chickaloon area. As well as to maintain programs and facilities at the Alpine Historical Park.

Senior Citizens Discount Tickets are available.  Advance Tickets will be on sale at local businesses throughout Wasilla, Palmer, Sutton and Anchorage.

Look for our poster displayed.
