Altoona's 20th annual fundraiser was hosted by chairs,
Tiffany & Matt Stuckey and Ehrin & Bill Ward Jr.
and held at Hollidaysburg’s beautiful
The Blairmont Club on Friday, November 4, 2022
The event began at 6:30 p.m. with a cocktail and hors d’oeuvres reception. Dinner stations throughout the club followed and were prepared by The Blairmont’s celebrated chef. The highlight of this year’s event was a live musical performance by the Flying Ivories, dueling piano group with artists based in NYC, Boston, Austin and Philadelphia.
Specializing in all-request, sing-along, totally interactive dueling piano shows, the Flying Ivories tackle music from any genre. The audience got involved in the pianist's antics in this combination musical performance and comedy act. Guests purchased incredible artworks for sale at the event, as well as unique experiences and gifts at the silent auction.
This annual event benefits Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art (SAMA) and our exceptional programs, numerous changing exhibitions, and award-winning educational experiences. SAMA’s Dueling Pianos is one of the signature fundraisers and provides critical support to the Museum.
