Summer Garden Party Fundraiser
August 3, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm
You are invited to our annual summer fundraising party on August 3 from 4-7 pm!
We are so excited to be honoring distinguished history professor, award winning author and local gem John Demos. From 4-7 pm on August 3, enjoy scrumptious hors d’oeuvres by Old Inn on the Green, try a signature drink inspired by early American libations and listen to the delightful music of Eric Martin and Karen Axelrod as you stroll through the verdant gardens of the Bidwell House Museum.
The first floor of the Museum will be open from 4-5 pm for mini-tours with our docents and interns. Everyone will receive a guest pass to come back for the full guided tour.
A silent auction will be held under the tent and will include such treasures as a week long stay in Lake Como, a ghost tour at The Mount, tickets to a Chester Theater Company production, a Jane Iredale gift basket and more!
This party is the Museum’s biggest fundraiser of the year and we are so grateful for your support! Tickets can be purchased HERE or if you would like to avoid fees, you can call and book directly with the Museum at 413-528-6888.
We can’t wait to see you on August 3!
