Speaker’s House Party for Preservation Fundraising Gala
April 28 @ 5:00 pm
The Speaker’s House, home of Frederick Muhlenberg—first Speaker of the U.S. House—will host a fundraiser gala on April 28 including a special presentation of the Speaker’s Choice Award to R. Scott Stephenson, President and CEO of the Museum of the American Revolution in Philadelphia. Established in 2008, the Speaker’s Choice Award recognizes individuals who embody the leadership qualities of Frederick Muhlenberg and who have made distinguished contributions to the local community, particularly in arts, culture, or historic preservation. The Party for Preservation gala is held at the Barn on Bridge, a renovated historic bank barn located just outside of Trappe. This special evening begins at five o’clock with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres on the heated outdoor patio, followed by a buffet dinner inside the barn. The Community Music School of Trappe will provide live music, and there will be a silent auction featuring works of art made by local craftspeople and unique experiences at area historic sites and museums. All proceeds from this event directly support the restoration of the historic Frederick Muhlenberg house; projects for this year include restoring the cooking fireplace and front door. Silent auction donations, program advertising, and sponsorship opportunities are available. To buy tickets or learn more, visit www.speakershouse.org/gala.
