The Coral Gables Museum will present its fourth annual fundraiser, An Evening on the Plaza, on Saturday, November 15. The setting for the evening will be the Museum’s beautiful Giralda Plaza, and the evening will feature cocktails, dinner, live music and the presentation of the Museum’s first Community Achievement Awards.

The event will celebrate four individuals whose energy and vision have significantly improved the lives of many who live in Coral Gables and neighboring areas. The honorees are David Evensky, Thelma Gibson, H.T. Smith and Judith Weissel. Their accomplishments – and the evening’s theme – illuminate the Museum’s mission, which is to celebrate, investigate and explore the civic arts.

Individual tickets are $250. Event sponsorships begin at $5,000, and underwriting opportunities begin at $500. All proceeds will support the Coral Gables Museum in continuing to provide exhibits, educational programs and events.

For additional information regarding the event, tickets, advertising, sponsorship and underwriting opportunities, please contact Christine Rupp at 305-603-8067 or email
