15th Annual Dinner & Auction

You are invited to attend our 15th Annual Dinner & Auction: DREAM. BUILD. CREATE. held at the Peabody Essex Museum on Wednesday, November 20th from 6:30 to 9:30 PM to support our mission to invest in neighborhoods to build thriving communities.

Join us in drink, dinner, and celebration as we raise funds for our programming and celebrate the contributions of the people and institutions that embody and strengthen our mission. Our work is possible because of the energy, leadership and support of exceptional partners and every year we recognize them through the Pillar of the Community awards.

We’re excited to return to the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem for our annual signature fundraiser. This year, cocktail hour will be held in the new wing at 6:30 PM. You will enter through the new Groups Entrances across from the fountain. After making your way into the Atrium, dinner will be served and the Program will begin at 8:00 PM. After, dinner, awards, the live auction, and dessert, you’ll exit through the main entrance.

More details to come as we get closer to the event!
