The Swedish American Museum’s annual fundraising event is a night of fun and celebration of Swedish and Swedish-American heritage and culture, and it usually takes place in October or November. A silent auction is held, and Museum guests are treated to a night of appreciation of the Museum’s mission and accomplishments, and particularly to celebrate our ties to the past and the present and our links to the future.
Save the date for this year’s annual fundraising gala to be held on Saturday, Oct. 26, 2013 at Roosevelt University’s Auditorium Ballroom.
We will honor Ken Nordine on Saturday, Oct. 26, at our annual dinner, dance, and auction to benefit the Swedish American Museum. The theme of this year’s ball, which will be held at Roosevelt University’s Auditorium Ballroom, is “All That Jazz” in homage to our honoree’s contribution to the world of word jazz. We hope you will join us for this annual celebration of the Swedish American Museum and Brunk Children’s Museum of Immigration.

He can be heard every Sunday at midnight on WBEZ 91.5FM hosting Wordjazz, a genre of spoken word that Nordine originated about 50 years ago.
