Oceanside Museum of Art’s Museum Ball: Puttin’ On The Ritz
July 22, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 11:00 pm$225
Oceanside Museum of Art’s highly anticipated annual gala is taking glitz and glam to a new level at The Museum Ball: Puttin’ On The Ritz. Attendees will enjoy an elegant and captivating evening of dining and dancing under the stars. The night commences with a sunset champagne toast on the expansive Biogen-Idec museum terrace before party-goers proceed to the Oceanside Civic Center Plaza where cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, and an al fresco dinner from Crown Point Catering will be served.
The live auction promises to have everyone’s paddles in the air competing to be the highest bidder on a variety of exclusive handpicked items. Guests will then dance the night away to the lively entertainment of local classic rock legends, The Fabulous Ultratones.
The opportunity drawing will have even those not in attendance clamoring to buy tickets for a chance to win a variety of premier prizes, as winners need not be present to win. The drawing tickets are $20 for one, $50 for three, or $100 for eight, and purchasers can designate which prize they’d like the opportunity to win.
A very special part of the evening’s festivities is the recognition of those individuals who will be awarded this year’s Medals of Distinction. The Medal of Distinction is the highest honor bestowed by the board of trustees to members of the museum who have made significant contributions to OMA. The 2017 recipients are Ermie Terry, Billie Nunan, and Ray and Sara Botts. These honorees will be presented with their medals at The Museum Ball.
This evening is also a time to recognize the museum for its dynamic vision within our North San Diego County communities. Funds raised at The Museum Ball directly support OMA’s engaging events, top-notch art exhibitions, and critical educational programming for members and visitors of all ages. We hope you will join us for this vibrant evening in support of OMA.
