CHICAGO (March 30, 2018) – The National Hellenic Museum (NHM) will hold its Annual Gala “Connecting Generations” Saturday, May 12, at the Chicago Marriott Downtown Magnificent Mile. The NHM Gala has always been a great opportunity for hundreds of Greek Americans and friends from across the country to gather together for a night of festivities and philanthropy. The evening features spectacular auctions, live music, and dancing while celebrating and supporting the legacy of Hellenism.

 

Thanks for reading Hellenic News of America

Philanthropic support from NHM Gala 2018 will benefit the tens of thousands of people – children and adults – who visit the National Hellenic Museum every year through field trips, tours and dynamic cultural and historical programs. Last year, the NHM achieved a 29 percent year-over-year increase in people served. Operationally, the NHM has been highly efficient with 81 cents of every dollar spent on programming, an excellent ratio among non-profit museums.

The Museum preserves the largest collection of artifacts and oral histories dedicated to the Greek American story anywhere in the world. Special events help to fund classes, field trips, tours, programs, and, as highlighted in this year’s theme, the protection of the museum archives and the important memories preserved for all. The artifacts in the NHM Collections serve as a crucial component of NHM’s educational outreach.

About the NHM Gala 2018 Design

 The textiles featured on the Gala design are preserved in the NHM Collections and Archives.

The embroidered pillows and crocheted doilies that decorated Greek living rooms are as beautiful as any painting. The quilts and garments that guarded us against the cold are functional and they are also art. Moreover, these pieces are important heirlooms that carry with them the memories and love of the women who made them. These are the threads that bind cloth – and also connect families and generations across oceans and continents.

At the National Hellenic Museum, we protect, preserve, and celebrate the many diverse threads of the Hellenic experience – and we use our collections in teaching about the fullness of Greek history.
