Bidwell Virtual Party

August 22, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Our Summer Fundraising Party Goes Virtual!

Our Silent Auction is Live!  BID HERE

(The auction is now open until Sunday at 9 pm, so you have an extra day to bid!)

On August 22 at 7 pm join us for the YouTube premier of the Bidwell House Museum’s annual summer fundraising party.  We wish we could be together in person, but in 2020 that is not possible, so instead we are planning an hour of music and fun.

The event begins with a bird’s eye view of the Museum along with an introduction and welcome from Museum Director Heather Kowalski. This will be followed by four fabulous local musicians, playing in some of our favorite spots in and around the museum. They include:

Musician Paula Bradley with a banjo

Violinist Eric Martin holding his violin

Robert Oakes and Katherine Smith

Bonner McAllister and Joe Baker, Mountain Laurel

Board of Trustees president Rob Hoogs will also tell us about the recently completed accessibility and preservation work at the Museum.

The Museum relies on the generosity of our supporters each year, and your donations are even more important in this time of uncertainty.  And to top it off our silent auction has gone virtual!  Click HERE to bid on some of the treasures!
