10th annual Museum Gala set for Aug. 6

Monday, July 25, 2011

The 10th Annual Putnam County Museum Gala and annual meeting is scheduled for 4-7 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 6 in the ballroom of the DePauw University Student Union with guitarist Sandy Williams as guest speaker.

The theme of the annual meeting and gala is being coordinated with the opening of the music exhibit and release of the "Putnam County Prime Cuts" CD, which will include more than 20 songs written by and/or performed by Putnam County musicians.

Blues, rock, jazz, bluegrass, country and gospel -- there is something for everyone.

The afternoon event will begin with a social hour that includes an appetizer bar, a donation wine bar and a silent auction, which is an important part of the fundraising event.

Businesses and individuals can help the museum by donating items for the silent auction before July 30. Any treasures around the house that need a new home are welcome.

Following the social hour, Williams, will share his extensive career as a musician that includes recording with Carrie Newcomer, Donovan, Sandi Patti, Bill Gaither and John Mellencamp.

Williams has worked with the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra, the Indianapolis Chamber Orchestra, and many notable singers in the entertainment field. He was a founding member of Greencastle's Average House Band and has privately taught jazz at DePauw University since 1996.

The Museum Gala will conclude with a brief meeting and election of officers. Silent auction items may be picked up when the gala has concluded.

Reservations are due to the museum by Wednesday, July 27. Tickets are $25 per person.
