Moody Mansion Christmas Gala

Benefiting The Magic City Wellness Center 

Join us for the 3rd Annual Moody Mansion Christmas Gala! 

Past year events were a tremendous success with hundreds of people attending, raising thousands of dollars for preservation efforts in Historic Bessemer. This year's event promises to be even bigger and better than last and will benefit BAO's Magic City Wellness Center.

Enter through one of Jefferson County's few Private Ball Rooms and tour the rest of the largest 19th century home in the county! Sample an immense array of delectables served only on silver in the dining hall from the#mansiontestkitchen, enjoy our open bar under the main staircase with the black tie bartenders, mingle with the local celebrities and dignitaries of Bessemer and beyond, and participate in our silent art auction upstairs in the Haunted Bedroom. Come enjoy the nostalgic elegance that The Moody Mansion exudes in each of the 18 rooms. With decorations on 20 Christmas trees and 9 mantels last year, come see how we outdo ourselves this year with even more!
