The 19th Annual Archival Evening is the Historical Society of Palm Beach County’s signature event.
Archival Evening Chairs: Lee Ann & Jeffrey Alderton, Ann-Britt & Christian Angle, Abigail & Hampton Beebe
Each December, the Historical Society of Palm Beach County holds its premier benefit event, Archival Evening. This year the much-anticipated elegant dinner dance will turn the spotlight on the foundation of the organization, the archive that preserves the collections gathered since 1937: millions of images, and thousands of documents, artifacts, and ephemera that reflect the people, places, and events that have contributed to the unique character of the Palm Beaches, from its world-renowned architecture to its inspiring cultural institutions and glittering social scene.
Funds raised from Archival Evening support this archive, the basis of our mission to collect, preserve, and share. Much of that sharing is in the form of education programs delivered to schools and in field trips to the Richard and Pat Johnson Palm Beach County History Museum. It is through events like this that the HSPBC is able to provide history curriculum materials to over 40,000 students each year at no expense to taxpayers, as well as free museum admission for all.
Ticket pricing starts at $750.
