The Women’s Museum of California’s annual benefit dinner on October 14th promises great food and wine under the stars in Liberty Station while raising money for a new year of original exhibits and educational programs.
Founded in 1983 by Mary Maschal the Women’s Museum of California has grown from a small collection of historical memorabilia to a full-fledged Museum preserving women’s stories, one of only three museums dedicated to women’s history in the country. Maschal’s motivation for starting the Museum was to teach girls and boys that women are equally capable as men to lead and find success and the many untold stories of women throughout history will inspire young people to do whatever it is they want to do.
Today, the Women’s Museum welcomes 10,000 visitors a year, mentors over a hundred student interns, produces 9 exhibits in-house each year and hosts monthly educational programming to further inspire the public on women’s stories and issues.
We can’t wait to see what next year at the Museum will bring, including new exhibits and programming as well as our annual events such as the San Diego Women’s Hall of Fame, Women’s Film Festival, and Suffrage Parade.
By attending the Benefit Dinner guests become a vital part of helping the Women’s Museum achieve Mary Maschal’s mission of inspiring future generations with stories of women past and present.
The evening starts at 5:00 PM with a cocktail hour in the Museum gallery at 2730 Historic Decatur Road, Suite 103, San Diego, CA 92106, and then moves outside at 6:00 PM in the Barracks courtyard of a four-course seated tasting dinner.
Tickets can be purchased at womensmueumca.org
