Polish Museum of America Invites All to 44th Annual Summer Gala

The Polish Museum of America (PMA) is thrilled to announce its 44th Annual Summer Gala, a celebration of Polish heritage and culture, set to take place on June 14th, 2024, at the prestigious O’Hare Tech Center in Schiller Park, Illinois.

The Gala promises an enchanting evening filled with elegance and camaraderie, featuring a Silent Auction, sumptuous Dinner, and lively Dancing. This year, the PMA proudly pays homage to the rich history of Polish sailing, commemorating a century of seafaring achievements and contributions.

With the Gala serving as the PMA's primary fundraiser for general operations, the institution extends a warm invitation to Polish Americans in Chicago, as well as enthusiasts of Polish and Polonian heritage nationwide, to join in supporting the preservation and promotion of shared stories and treasures for generations to come.

Highlighting this year's event are the prestigious Polish Spirit Awards, presented to esteemed individuals and organizations. We are delighted to honor Ewa Radwanska, MD, PhD, with the Polish Spirit Award in the individual category, and the Polish Scouting Organization ZHP of Illinois in the organization category.

There are several ways to participate and contribute to this noble cause:

  • Appeals: Show your generous support with donation levels ranging from $25 to $10,000. All donors will be recognized in the Program Book, with banner recognition for the top four categories. Thanks to a generous anonymous friend of the PMA, the first $50,000 raised via the appeal will be matched in memory of Jack and Dorothy Radgowski.
  • Ads: Businesses and organizations can showcase their patronage with ad space ranging from $300/quarter page to $1,000/gold full page.
  • Guests: Attend the Gala and immerse yourself in a memorable evening celebrating the PMA's mission. Invitations will be sent separately.
  • Auction: For the first time in 2024, the traditional auction moves online, allowing supporters unable to attend the Gala to participate in the PMA's continued growth. Visit PMASummerGala.org for details and registration.

Whether through appeals, ads, attendance, or auction participation, every contribution plays a vital role in preserving the heritage of our forebears for the future generations of our community.

Kindly respond by May 29, 2024. Donations are tax-deductible as provided by law.
