This year's Gala & Silent Auction is a step back in time- 100 years to be exact! We are 'In the Pines' and back on the museum grounds as we celebrate the 100th anniversary of F. Scott & Zelda's meeting in Montgomery in 1918.
This annual event is not only a celebration in style, but the museum's largest annual fundraiser! Your ticket purchase goes directly toward preserving and restoring the only dedicated museum to F. Scott & Zelda in the world.
Montgomery was the home of Zelda Fitzgerald and the setting for her & Scott's infamous meeting that sparked the beginning of the 'Jazz Age'. This year, we'll take a step back to 1918 and celebrate the history of our city and Cloverdale (or 'the pines').
Take a walk through the galleries with gin in hand, bid on auction items, (like a weekend stay at the Hotel Monteleone in New Orleans), and dance the night away to the sounds of Gypsy Cornbread!
VIP guests will enjoy an after-hours speakeasy and be sure to stay tuned for auction announcements and more! We hope to see you there and thank you for your support!
