The Belmont Stakes Gala was a grand, sophisticated, and entertaining evening sponsored by the Bruno and Lena DeGol Family Foundation.
Once again, our Gala committee and SAMA staff planned a fabulous evening to include outdoor vistas as well as indoor fun. Guests to wore horse racing attire and uniquely decorated hats as this is not only a tradition but also good luck for the wearer, male and female alike. The evening was filled with music, laughter, amazing hors d'oeuvres, delicious sweets, an open bar, and the Belmont Stakes race shown live on the big screen. The auctions featured art and sculpture, unique garden features, dream vacations, excursions, and overnight stays such as a Fallingwater private tour and nearby cabin retreat, and more. The Casino was open all evening and players can used their winnings to buy beautiful, bountiful gift baskets; the silent auction offered unique shopping fun.
This annual event benefits the Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art and our exceptional programs, numerous changing exhibitions, and award-winning educational experiences. SAMA’s Gala is one of four signature fundraisers and provides critical support to the Museum.
