Keeler Tavern Museum & History Center’s signature fundraising event is the Cannonball Gala, hosted by the Museum’s Board of Trustees each fall. The Cannonball Gala is the main source of revenue for KTHC’s operating and education budgets. Ticket sales, sponsorships, and auction revenues are crucial to maintaining its role in the community.
This year’s gala is returning to the KTHC campus. It will pay tribute to ‘Ridgefield’s Gilded Age’ with garden cocktails, bourbon and ale in the Museum’s tavern, live music, auctions, and a sit-down dinner by Sarah Bouissou Catering. Live and Silent Auctions will feature past favorites along with several new desirable items. Auction pre-bidding will begin August 16th!
The evening’s festivities will honor Judi and Charlie Pankenier for their dedication to KTHC with a presentation of the Cannonball Award. Chris Petersen, 7th grade social studies teacher from Scotts Ridge Middle School, will receive the Anna Keeler Award for Excellence in History and Civics Education.
Tickets for the event are $175 per person. $100 of each ticket is tax-deductible.
Sponsorship opportunities are also available. Cocktail attire.
