Masquerade in the Garden, Nassau County Museum of Art’s 2014 Museum Ball, will be held on Saturday, June 14 at 7 p.m. The inspiration for the Ball’s decorative theme is the museum’s current exhibition, Garden Party—this black-tie evening of dining and dancing will be as elegant and as lush as the works on view in the galleries. The Museum Ball will be held on the grounds of museum’s historic Gold Coast mansion, gardens and grounds, the former Frick Estate. The Ball is the museum’s major annual fundraiser, providing an important component of the museum’s operating budget, offering support for an ambitious schedule of exhibitions and stimulating educational programs for adults, students, families and school groups. The 2014 Ball also launches the celebration of the museum’s 25th year of serving the communities of Long Island and beyond.
Guests will dance to the music of The Alex Donner Orchestra, and will bid for exciting auction prizes including artwork, trips, jewelry, fine dining and unique event experiences. The Ball also features a raffle for a magnificent diamond ring donated by Ambalu Jewelers. The media partner for Masquerade in the Garden is the prestigious magazine, New York Cottages and Gardens. The handsome Ball invitation is sponsored by Healthplex: Dr. & Mrs. Stephen J. Cuchel, Dr. & Mrs. Martin Kane, and Dr. & Mrs. George Kane.
