New Claremore Event Promises Music and Mystery


The members of the Junior Ocieleta Club of Claremore are planning the upcoming Moonlight Masquerade at the Will Rogers Memorial Museum as a fundraiser for scholarships and community needs.

The ladies of Junior Ocieleta Club of Claremore are planning a brand new fundraiser you won’t want to miss! On the heels of last year’s very successful Hangar Dance comes the Moonlight Masquerade.

“Before last year, we felt a social dance event was something Claremore was lacking,” said Stephanie Andrews, Junior Ocieleta President. “We had so much fun bringing the community together for the Hangar Dance that we decided another gala was definitely in order. This year we chose a masquerade theme.”

Claremore’s Hammett House will be catering an incredible menu of heavy hors d’oeuvres. There will also be a cash bar for anyone wishing to partake. For entertainment, DJ Connection will help keep the dance floor hopping. Attendees are encouraged to dress in cocktail to formal attire and festive masks and come ready to dance the night away.

“We are really excited to host such a fun themed event,” said Andrews. “Masquerade balls kind of create an air of mystery and secrecy. We really hope the public will get into the mask-wearing fun and come to the event ready for a great time.”

In addition to the food, drinks and dancing, Moonlight Masquerade will play host to a silent auction and wine pull. Casino-style game tables will also add an element of fun. And guests can enjoy preserving their memories of the evening with a photo booth donated by Apex Title.

Moonlight Masquerade will be held at the Will Rogers Memorial Museum on Saturday, May 6, 2017, at 7:00 PM. Tickets to the event are $35 per person or $60 per couple and can be purchased from any Junior Ocieleta member or from two different Claremore businesses: Bennett’s Route 66 Pharmacy, located at 700 N. Lynn Riggs Blvd., and Elizabeth Jean Salon, located at 221 S. Florence Ave. Limited seating will be available. To reserve a seat, eight-person tables are available for a fee of $500.

“We appreciate all the support we have received from the public and area businesses,” said Andrews. “This year’s event will be bigger than last year’s and we hope next year’s will be even bigger. Junior Ocieleta would love to keep growing this event into something people can enjoy and really look forward to attending each year.”

Junior Ocieleta’s Moonlight Masquerade is possible with help of major event sponsors Pelco Structural, Bennett’s Route 66 Pharmacy, RCB Bank, and Pixley Lumber.

Junior Ocieleta Club, founded in 1956, is a women’s service organization that’s sole purpose is to support local community needs and non-profit organizations, including an annual scholarship drive. For more information, search Facebook for Junior Ocieleta Club of Claremore or visit
