On Saturday, June 11th, the Corporator Council of the Worcester Art Museum will be hosting the second annual Corporators Ball, La Grande Fête, a gala fundraiser in celebration and support of the Museum’s mission to connect art and community.
This year, event co-chairs Lisa H. McDonough and Susan M. Palatucci have prepared an elegant evening inspired by WAM’s superb collection of French art, including Monet’s Water Lilies, and Bonnard’s Dining Room in the Country, currently on loan from the Minneapolis Institute of Art. In addition to the works of art that will be on display during the evening, the entire evening will combine cuisine, sights and sounds of France while in the company of over 350 of the region’s most prominent and influential business leaders, art enthusiasts, and philanthropists.
Festivities include red-carpet arrival and champagne welcome, a French-themed menu prepared by Pepper’s Fine Catering, finely-curated silent and live auctions, and a fabulous post-dinner party, Après Fête.
Editor’s Note: The dinner/auction is sold out, but tickets remain for Après Fête.
