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.
Three Crowns Ball: Annual Dinner, Dance and Auction
On Nov. 7 we honored North Park University’s Center for Scandinavian Studies and Dr. Charles Peterson for their contributions to the Swedish-American community and celebrated the 39th anniversary of the Swedish American Museum at our annual ball. It was a terrific evening with friends. We want to thank all who attended our gala as well as those individuals and businesses that donated to our silent and live auctions and raffle. We also would like to thank our sponsors: Ulla and Bertil Brunk, the Edith-Marie Appleton Foundation, Great Lakes Clinical Trials, Ken Norgan, Volvo Cars of North America, Anders and Donna Gustafsson, AkzoNobel, Wayne E. Nelson, Delta Airlines, SWEA Chicago and Topiarius.
