The Belmont Stakes Gala promises to be a grand, sophisticated, and entertaining evening sponsored by the Bruno and Lena DeGol Family Foundation. Reservations are required by

Friday, June 3rd.


Once again, our Gala committee and SAMA staff have planned a fabulous evening to include outdoor vistas as well as indoor fun. We encourage our guests to wear your 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 will be 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 will feature 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 will be open all evening and players can use their winnings to buy beautiful, bountiful gift baskets; the silent auction will offer 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.
