Inspired by Duke Ellington’s quote proclaiming the Morris-Jumel Mansion the “Jewel of Sugar Hill,” the Museum’s Spring 2017 fundraising event will transform the Mansion and Roger Morris Park into the hottest social gathering since the roaring 20s.
At the Mansion’s second annual on-site gala, guests will imbibe custom cocktails while sampling pass hor d’oeuves by Nova Catering and enjoy live music provided by the Dew Drop Society. The highlight of the evening will be performances by fan dancer Karina Libido and sideshow performer Adam RealMan with special guest host Sir Richard Castle. Throughout the night raffle prizes will be awarded with the evening culminating in a grand raffle not to be missed! This event will also serve as the unveiling of recent conservation work throughout the Museum.
The evening will support the diverse array of public programming presented by Morris-Jumel Mansion.
