BRAHM Gala: A Brush with Genius

BRAHM Gala 2020

At the Perry's Car Barn
Friday, August 21, 2020 

Cocktails at 6:00 pm | Dinner at 7:00 pm

 

BRAHM's 2020 Gala, hosted by Cantey & Jim Tanner and Cindy & Cobb Milner, will be held in conjunction with the Blowing Rock Plein Air Festival. A Brush with Genius will present an evening of classic cars, music, live benefit auction, dinner, and good company.

During cocktail hour inside the Car Barn, guests will mingle around the impressive classic car collection and gain a sneak peek of the live auction offerings, including paintings created by special guest artists.

The elegant seated dinner prepared by Reid's Catering will be served al fresco under the tent adjacent to the Car Barn.

Before dessert, guests will bid on auction items for the museum and on the paintings created especially for the event.  All proceeds directly support BRAHM's exhibitions, educational programs, and community outreach.

Entertainment will be provided by Wendy Jones Quartet.
