2023 Grundy Gala

For the first time, the Grundy Foundation would be honored by your presence at the Inaugural Grundy Gala to benefit Museum Education Programming.

Your ticket purchase directly supports Grundy Museum’s CanDoMore initiatives which provide educational programming to the Bristol Borough community and beyond free of charge.

These programs include our Fifth Grade Tour, Victorian Kids’ Summer Camp, STEAM program, high school-level Decorative Arts program, as well as lectures from expert speakers on collections-related topics. These programs are designed to pique the intellectual curiosity of students and adults for local history in the late-Victorian Era.

With a strong belief in eliminating participation barriers such as cost, distance, and lack of interest, we invite you to support these existing programs and to help us introduce new ones, too.

An unforgettable evening awaits! Your ticket includes a keynote speech by celebrated-former Eagles head coach Dick Vermeil, service of Vermeil Wines, catering by Jules at Market, and live jazz by Frank Butrey Trio.

Single tickets sell for $100, and sponsorships range from $250 to $5,000. Sponsors at the top-two tiers listed below will have exclusive access to Coach Vermeil, as well as an exclusive wine tasting of Vermeil Wines led by Coach on the South Lawn. Other sponsors and single-ticket purchasers will enjoy beer and wine on Margaret’s Garden Terrace. Dinner will feature Vermeil Wines.
