Curators Dinner

Join us for the annual Burke Museum Curators Dinner!

Thank you!  The 14th Annual Curators Dinner took place on Friday, May 4, 2018, at the Mountaineers Club. The evening featured rare, behind-the-scenes tours of the Museum’s oversize collections, as well as silent and live auctions, and three-course dinner. Sally Jewell, former Secretary of the Interior and CEO of REI and long-time environmental advocate, was honored. A portion of the evening's proceeds supported the New Burke, a new flagship facility opening in 2019.

Thanks to the incredible generosity of our event sponsors, attendees, and matching pool donors we raised a record-breaking $488,000 in support of the Burke Museum. 

Interested in attending the 15th Annual Curators Dinner? Be sure to save the date and mark your calendar now for Friday, May 3, 2019. More information about the event and how to register will be available in early 2019.
