Kokopelli Golf Club & Clubhouse Restaurant | 06:30 pm - 01:00 am
 
Come ring-in 2018 at Kokopelli Golf Club's first New Year’s Eve Party!  This party will be the first of its kind in Southern Illinois and one that you won’t want to miss.  Kokopelli’s elegant ambiance will provide the perfect backdrop for our celebration.  David Hays will prepare a gourmet selection of international cuisine and deserts for an evening of delicious “grazing”.
 
“The Main Stage” will feature Stretta, a premier cover band from Nashville, TN.  Stretta will have everyone out of their seats and dancing with popular songs spanning five decades.  As part of our fundraising efforts, “The Second Stage” will feature a Casino Night atmosphere complete with roulette and blackjack tables.  Professional dealers from St. Louis Casino Party will be in charge of running the casino.
 
Our Photo Booth, from My Michelle’s, will capture you and your friends on film in New Year’s Eve hats and masks to commemorate our celebration.  At midnight, we will ring in the new year with a champagne toast and a fireworks display by Frierdich Fireworks of Belleville, followed by a tasty Midnight Snack.
 
Country Inn & Suites is offering discounted room rates for guests that would prefer to stay in “the neighborhood” rather than drive home.  River-to-River will provide a shuttle from the hotel to Kokopelli and back to the hotel after the event.  River-to-River is a not-for-profit, charitable organization. This is Kokopelli's way of giving back to the community and an opportunity for you to help them as well.  Come enjoy a fun and memorable evening!
