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 celebration of the Museum’s mission and accomplishments.
We will honor Verdandi Lodge No. 3, I.O.S. on Saturday, Nov. 8, 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 the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum, is Garden Gala.
