Enjoy a signature cocktail at the open bar, dine on delicious dishes from Corcoran Caterers and dance the night away to live music.

Experience an entertaining live auction hosted by local personality Marc Rosenberg – otherwise known as the “Lemonade Shaking Guy.”


At the auction, bid to win one-of-a-kind experiences such as a one week stay for up to fourteen people at a 15th century manoir in Treguier, France; a private, catered dinner for ten at Sandy Spring Museum; a tour of the Redskins Locker Room, a walk-on role on a TV Drama, and so much more!

We will also have amazing silent auction items to increase the fun!

The night doesn’t end there!  Wrap up the evening at a private champagne after-party and meet our 2017 Maryland Champion Award winner, former Governor Martin O’Malley.  Purchasing a ticket to the after-party automatically enters you into a drawing to win a 2017 Toyota Prius.

All proceeds from the gala go to support Sandy Spring Museum’s community-driven programming.

We hope to see you there!!

This year’s gala is generously sponsored by Therrien Waddell Construction Group and Corcoran Caterers.
