Purchase Tickets Now for Keeler Tavern Museum & History Center’s Cannonball Gala

Tickets and sponsorships are now available for Keeler Tavern Museum & History Center’s upcoming Cannonball Gala, to be held on our beautiful grounds on Saturday, May 13, 2023. Seats are limited for this in-demand event, so purchase tickets now to ensure you don’t miss out!

The Gala is KTM&HC’s biggest fundraising event of the year, and this year we’re honoring Nick and Anita Donofrio, who are longtime museum supporters and pillars of Ridgefield’s philanthropic landscape. Sponsorships include tickets and publicity options; individual tickets are available for $200 each. Attendees will enjoy cocktails and dinner in the Garden House and in the tented walled garden, with catering by Michael Bick. The evening will feature musical entertainment by the Ridgefield Symphony Orchestra Jazz Trio as well as live and silent auctions and a paddle raise led by auctioneer Allison Stockel. There will also be a raffle for a one-of-a-kind, painted ceramic lamp by beloved artist Susan Scala – a $365 value.

Looking to host a table? Consider the Dogwood Sponsorship, our premier level, which offers eight tickets, premium event signage recognition, and a premium publicity package! Also available: the Sugar Maple, White Spruce, and Arborvitae Sponsorships – all taking their names from the trees that will be planted on our site in the coming months, as part of our major physical campus reintegration, wayfinding, and accessibility project. Each sponsorship level offers a range of tickets and publicity options. Advertisements are also available for purchase in our program book: spread the word about your business and share your appreciation of our honorees and museum by purchasing either a half- or full-page ad, with costs ranging from $300 to $500.

Thank you for supporting KTM&HC! All proceeds from the Gala will benefit the museum, allowing KTM&HC to continue to deliver on its mission to preserve and share its collections and stories. As in the past, the paddle raise will benefit our school programs. Buy individual tickets, sponsorships, and program book advertisements on our website at www.keelertavernmuseum.org/gala/. We hope to see you there!
