Gala Tickets Are On Sale Now!

March 28, 2024

Ridgefield, Conn.— Tickets and sponsorships are now available for Keeler Tavern Museum & History Center’s upcoming Cannonball Gala, to be held on our beautiful grounds on Saturday, May 11, 2024. Seats are limited for this in-demand event, so purchase tickets now to ensure you don’t miss out!

The Gala is KTM&HC’s biggest fundraising event of the year, and this year we’re honoring Tina and Don Sturges, longtime museum supporters and engaged community members. Sponsorships include tickets and publicity options; individual tickets are available for $225 each. Attendees will enjoy cocktails and dinner in the museum’s historic walled garden and Garden House, with catering by Á Table by Sarah + Bernard. The evening will feature musical entertainment by the Ridgefield Symphony Orchestra Jazz Trio as well as live and silent auctions and a paddle raise led by auctioneer Allison Stockel. There will also be a raffle for a framed, signed print by artist and Gala honoree Tina Cobelle-Sturges – a $400 value.

Looking to host a table? Consider the Dogwood Sponsorship, our premier level, which offers ten tickets, premium event signage, and a full page program book ad. Also available: the Sugar Maple, White Spruce, and Arborvitae Sponsorships – all taking their names from the trees that have recently been planted on our site as part of our major physical campus wayfinding and accessibility project. Each sponsorship level offers a range of tickets and publicity options.

Advertisements are also available for purchase in our program book: spread the word about your business and share your appreciation of our honorees and museum by purchasing either a half- or full-page ad, with costs ranging from $300 to $500.

Thank you for supporting KTM&HC! All proceeds from the Gala will benefit the museum, allowing KTM&HC to continue to deliver on its mission to preserve and share its collections and stories. The paddle raise will benefit our fabulous school programs. Buy individual tickets, sponsorships, and program book advertisements on our website at We hope to see you there!
