Evansville Museum Guild celebrates 50 years

Posted: Updated:

The Evansville Museum will host their annual November gala this weekend.

This year's theme-"Golden Guild: Celebrating 50 Years of Museum Service"- recognizes the Evansville Museum Guild on the occasion of their 50th anniversary.

The event will be held at the Evansville Country Club on Saturday at 6 p.m.

It's the museum's biggest social event of the season.

The evening will involve cocktails, live entertainment, gourmet foods and auctions of art and travel and dining packages.

Over the past four decades, the museum guild's projects have generated nearly $1 million for the museum's operating budget.

Over 200 exhibitions in the museum's art, history, and science galleries have been made possible by the guild's financial support and its volunteer efforts.

This event will provide an opportunity to acknowledge these museum ambassadors.

Again, it's this Saturday at 6 p.m.
