  • The Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum proudly announces that its next gala, “Bella Notte a Venezia: A Beautiful Night in Venice,” will be on Saturday, May 6, 2023. Join us for an immersive evening at the museum.

    Guests will enter a Pioneer Hall transformed into Venice: a romantic, magical city that floats on water. Fountains, romantic lighting, and floral touches will greet guests as they are transported to the “city of canals.” Enjoy themed hors d’oeuvre and cocktails; wonderful silent auction items will also be available to view and bid on as guests mingle and revel in la dolce vita.


    New this year, a fully engaging experience awaits our highest VIP levels in our Harrington Changing Gallery with a special bar, themed hors d’oeuvres and exquisite service. This space will be limited so please take advantage and make it a truly bella note

    Dinner will be served in the PPHM Derrick Room, where guests will enjoy an incredible four-course meal “under the stars.” Each dish will be inspired by the best that Italian cuisine has to offer. A spirited live auction—with exceptional items—will be followed by dancing to The Wonderfuls and drinks in the transformed Pioneer Hall. This will truly be a beautiful night in Venice – bella notte a Venezia!

    For nearly ninety years, the museum has been dedicated to telling the exceptional stories of this region and beyond. Though we may be transported to “another place” during this gala, your attendance and support ensures that the museum continues to make an impact closer to home.

    As guests will be traveling to the “city of masks,” it only makes sense that masquerade masks will be a welcomed addition to your attire. Seating will be extremely limited. Please respond by February 15, 2023.

    We look forward to seeing you on May 6, 2023.
