On August 1, 2020, Shaker Museum will hold its first ever virtual Annual Benefit Gala. The theme of this year’s Gala is inclusion, and the Museum’s honorees, Lacey Schwartz Delgado and Alan Cumming, are individuals whose work embodies and promotes inclusion.
The event will unite numerous supporters of the Shaker Museum in a shared online experience that will include entertainment, remarks from the honorees, and a dance party hosted by Alan Cumming’s Club Cumming in New York City via Instagram Live. The gala is the Museum’s largest annual fundraising event and is critical to the Shaker Museum’s ability to continue to fulfill its mission to tell the story of the Shakers, including their furniture and architecture as well as their values of inclusion, innovation, integrity, and conviction.
