Since 2002, the Museum of Glass has been holding their annual Auction & Gala, with 2023 marking its 21st year.
Red Hot: Museum of Glass Auction & Gala is set for September 30, with a wonderful schedule lined up for this year’s event. Check-in begins at 5pm, followed by a cocktail reception, live auction preview and silent auction beginning at 5:30pm; dinner, program, live auction with Laura Michalek, fundraising auctioneer, starting at 6:30pm; and an after-party featuring artist Katherine Gray from 9 to 10pm to close out the evening.
“This year’s Red Hot will be an unforgettable gathering in support of glass art and artists,” shares Lindsay Carlisle, development events manager for Museum of Glass. “Enjoy cocktails and dinner in the Grand Hall. Bid on your favorite pieces during the live auction and program. Complete the evening with drinks and a live glass-blowing demonstration at the after-party. Enjoy an iridescent experience with Katherine Grey as she creates a work of art to be auctioned off the pipe!”
Tickets are priced $300 per person, $1,800 for a table of six, $3,000 for a table of 10. The event is set up to accommodate 175 guests, so be sure to purchase your individual ticket or table today at MuseumofGlass.org/red-hot-gala.
As Lindsay reminds, “Red Hot provides critical revenue for the operation of Museum of Glass and supports the development of meaningful programs.”
