Dear Friend of the PMA –

This year, the Polish Museum of America (PMA) Summer Gala honors the 100-year history of Polish sailing. In support of the biggest general operations fundraiser of the year, the PMA looks to Polish Americans in Chicago and across the US, as well as anyone with an interest in Polish and Polonian culture and heritage, so that we may continue to conserve and promote our shared stories and treasures for future generations. This year’s Gala will be held on Friday, June 14, 2024, at O'Hare Tech Center in Schiller Park, Illinois, where Ewa Radwanska, MD, PhD, and the Polish Scouting Organization ZHP of Illinois will be honored with the Polish Spirit Award in the individual and organization category, respectively. You can be part of this by the following:

  • APPEALS – Show your generous support of the PMA; levels from $25 to $10,000; banner recognition for the top four categories; all donors will be proudly acknowledged in the Program Book. Thanks to a generous, anonymous PMA friend and supporter, the first $50,000 raised via the appeal will guarantee a $50,000 matching donation which is in memory of Jack and Dorothy Radgowski.
  • ADS – Businesses and organizations can show their patronage; levels from $300/ quarter page to $1,000/ gold full page.
  • GUESTS – Attend the Gala and enjoy a memorable evening celebrating the PMA; invitations available separately.
  • AUCTION – New for 2024, the traditional auction moves online so that supporters who are unable to attend the Gala can still participate in the PMA’s continued growth. Please visit PMASummerGala.org for details and to register.

Choose one, a few, or all four ways to be with us as we lead the Polish Museum of America in preserving the heritage of our parents and grandparents for the future of our children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.

Thank you for your commitment to the future of the Polish Museum of America!
