FRIDAY, JUNE 28, 2024

The Brinton Museum Event Pavilion



Please call 307-763-5933 if you would like to be put on our waiting/cancellation list.

Join us for our annual gala benefit on the Quarter Circle A Ranch on Friday, June 28.

We invited you to join us for our annual gala benefit at the base of the Bighorn mountains on the Quarter Circle A Ranch.  This year’s event celebrates Planting the Seeds by so many dedicated individuals over The Brinton Museum’s 63-year history, especially those by the late Jane Ferril who was the inaugural Annual Brinton Gala Committee Chair.  Be a part of cultivating seeds previously planted and in sowing new seeds for the future ahead at The Brinton Museum!

The evening begins with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres with light musical entertainment by Denver based musicians The Auell Brothers and the chance to bid on the silent auction.   This year we are featuring custom boot maker John Allen Woodward during the event, and attendees will have the opportunity to purchase a custom pair of boots with a percentage of sales supporting the museum.  Attendees will also want to carry cash with them to take a 1 in 52 chance ($50 each) at winning a card raffle for a stunning necklace and ring set donated by On the Rocks Jewelry!

A plated dinner will be served followed by a paddle raise and live auction to benefit museum exhibitions and programming.  Attendees will have the opportunity to raise the paddle and bid in support of museum programming and the acquisition of the historically important Edward Borein decorative frieze which was originally installed in the Gallatin Ranch House and is currently on display in the museum’s Gallery of Western Art.

The evening will close out with lively musical entertainment by The Auell Brothers.
