Event Selection

Recognizing the 30th Anniversary of the Museum, this year's Gala honors the Founders Circle, a group of eight individuals and families whose passion and financial support made the Museum possible.

The evening honors: Thomas Donahoe, The Farley Family, Nancy Firfer, Dolores Kohl Kaplan, Diana Mendley Rauner, W. Fritz Souder, Frederick H. Waddell and Estelle Walgreen.

The evening starts with cocktails in the Museum and then moves to a tented terrace for dinner, entertainment, and dancing.
