National Committee Celebration

National Committee Celebration brings together a visionary group of the Museum’s most generous patrons as our guests for dinner and discussion. This group is important for so many reasons, but crucially, philanthropic support accounts for more than two-thirds of the Museum’s operating budget. Members at the $1,000 level and above are eligible to attend.
