Bruce Museum Gala


The thirty-first Bruce Museum Gala with the theme "Jewels of the Jungle" was held on May 12, 2018 at Greenwich Country Club. Formerly known as the Renaissance Ball, this annual benefit raised critical funds that not only support the Bruce’s ongoing art and science exhibitions and educational programs, but also will refresh the museum's science offerings, strengthen its potential in the arts, and expand its educational reach.

The evening was co-chaired by Katie Fong Biglin, Kim Kassin, Shelly Tretter Lynch and Honorary Chair Avril Graham, Executive Fashion & Beauty Editor at Harpers Bazaar. Lucile and Richard J. Glasebrook and Gale and Robert H. Lawrence, Jr., longtime supporters of the Museum, were honored at the event. The transformation jungle décor was conceived by Renny & Reed and Sebass Events & Entertainment that paid tribute to the Bruce Museum’s recent exhibition Treasures of the Earth: Mineral Masterpieces from the Robert R. Wiener Collection and the National Geographic Photo Ark: Photographs by Joel Sartore. Thank you to the event sponsors Aman, Amica Insurance, Saks Fifth Avenue, Steven Fox Jewelry, National Geographic Expeditions and Sotheby’s International Realty, and our media sponsor Greenwich Magazine/Moffly Media.
