All That Jazz – Bidwell House Museum Summer Fundraiser

August 17 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm

$150.00 - $500.00
A party to benefit the Bidwell House Museum

Join the the Board of the Directors at the Bidwell House for their annual fundraising party to benefit the Museum. The theme this year is All That Jazz and we will celebrate the Museum on the grounds of the historic Berkshire School of Art at 66 Art School Road, right next door to the Bidwell House.

Our honoree this year is Bidwell Board Member Rick Wilcox. Rick is a Bidwell descendant, and has been a Museum board member since 2014. He is invaluable to the Museum as a remarkable historical researcher and writer, having produced for us over 150 issues of Bidwell Lore, as well as an active member of the Programs Committee. We have benefited from his connection with Stockbridge as the retired Chief of Police, and from his association with the Stockbridge Library Museum & Archives. Importantly, he has helped us better understand the role of the Stockbridge-Munsee Band of Mohicans in the history of our land.

Guest will enjoy some swinging jazz from members of the band The Lucky Five and delicious appetizers will be provided by local favorite Kate Baldwin. There will also be a silent auction with some fabulous gifts and experiences.

Parking for this event will be at the Bidwell House Museum and there will be shuttles between the parking lot and the party.

This summer party is the major fundraising event of the year for the museum. All proceeds from this event will support the historic 1760s homestead, year-round educational programs, and the gardens and grounds, which are open to the community, free of charge, all year.

Tickets start at $150. Those who purchase tickets at the $250 and $500 level will be listed on the Museum website as party sponsors.
