Our Signature Events
The Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art (SAMA) holds several themed annual gala fundraisers each year unique to the areas in which our museums reside: Altoona's Think Pink; Bedford's Crystal Soirée; Ligonier Valley's Garden Party; And, Loretto's themed gala.
The proceeds raised from our gala events help to sustain the museum's operations.
We cannot do it without the support of our communities. Thank you for supporting the museum in YOUR community!
As museums across the globe are navigating new and uncertain circumstances, SAMA is coming up with new ways to connect with the community. Without the ability to host large special events, we turn instead to intimate gatherings where visitors and staff can engage personally in modified, smaller settings.
