2013 Gala : Celebrating the Legacy of Leadership


Enjoy an evening that supports the work of the Reginald F. Lewis Museum, the East Coast's largest African American museum. Proceeds benefit the institution's exhibitions; public programs including films and concerts; and educational programs such as The Saturday's Child Series that provides fun activities for families and children. Honorary Co-Chairs are: Nancy S. Grasmick, the former Maryland State Superintendent and currently Director of Kennedy Krieger's Center for Innovation and Leadership in Special Education; and Adam Jones, Gold Glove Center Fielder.

The museum’s 2013 Gala will honor those who served tirelessly on the early Board of Directors, and whose continued support has helped to ensure the Museum’s growth and relevancy.
