Greenwich High School to Host “Paint the Museum Red” Fundraiser at Bruce Museum

On October 19, 2018 the GHS PTA will be host a fundraiser cocktail party “Paint the Museum Red” at Bruce Museum.

Last year the PTA held their fundraiser at the iconic Richards on Greenwich Avenue.

This year they wanted to showcase another iconic Greenwich landmark, the unique Bruce Museum.

Many people in Greenwich may not know that the Bruce Museum is a community based, world-class institution highlighting art, science and natural history in more than a dozen changing exhibitions annually.

The permanent galleries feature the natural sciences that encompass regional to global perspectives. The Museum was originally built as a private home in 1853. Robert Moffat Bruce (1822-1909), a wealthy textile merchant and member of the New York Cotton Exchange, bought the house and property in 1858 and deeded them to the Town on Greenwich in 1908.

The fundraiser cocktail will be from 6:30-9:30pm at the Bruce Museum to help raise funds for the school.

The evening will include cocktails, a gin and vodka tasting, heavy hors d’oeuvres, a silent auction and more. This year the bidding will be an online system, so participants can bid comfortably from your phone while they walk around the galleries and enjoy the stunning exhibits.

The GHS PTA fundraising goals for the event are targeted to curriculum enrichment including field trips, in-school programs, cutting-edge teaching and learning tools for the classroom, parent education and advocacy including college process seminars, teen health behavior information, advocacy with school personnel for families, and student, staff and family services including outreach, teacher appreciation, student employment services, scholarship, volunteer support, college & career center help.

The goal with the event is to celebrate GHS and support the PTA.

The GHS community is invite to explore the Bruce Museum, bid, mingle, nibble and have fun!
