The Anthenaeum’s largest fundraiser and social event, the gala, has always featured a special theme since 1990. Enjoy live music and sassy dancing and an extra-special parade of partygoers on Wall Street and Girard Avenue. The Gala guests get into the spirit of the theme by wearing extravagant costumes or cocktail attire. A few tickets may still available at the museum.
Cocktails and live entertainment on the patio and in the library begin as dusk falls, followed by a delectable dinner catered by the La Jolla Hyatt Regency. After dinner there is dancing and a silent auction. Tickets include the After Party. The hardworking Gala Committee transforms the library into an alternate world. Artists on the committee always design appropriate and beautiful décor, much of which goes on sale in the library.
Proceeds from the gala directly support the Athenaeum’s mission.
