We are delighted to announce our Annual Awards Gala: Out of Many, One Community, live-streaming on Saturday, May 22, 2021 at 7:00 pm. This year’s Gala commemorates our 45th year of “Keeping Claremont’s History Alive”. I want to personally invite you to join us for a celebratory evening honoring our many community groups and bestowing our annual Preservation and Cultural Heritage Awards.
This year’s awardees are:
2021 Bess Garner Preservation Award – Claremont Wildlands Conservancy
2021 Cultural Heritage Award – Richard Martinez, Artist, Teacher, Mentor
Please join us for a fun and exciting evening of entertainment including musical performances, trivia, a fabulous, treasure-filled online auction and highlights from Claremont’s history.
This is our main fundraising event for the year and we need your help! We are looking for event underwriters and donations for our online auction.
Your underwriting support will enhance your connection to the community, it will align you or your company with the values that Claremont Heritage fights to preserve! A community that is unique, beautiful, and a place to call home. Whether you live, work or play here, you know why Claremont is such a special place.
For the online auction we are seeking items such as:
Artwork by local artists - Karl Benjamin, Harrison McIntosh, Rupert Deese, Betty Davenport Ford, Paul Darrow to mention a few.
Gift Baskets - featuring Claremont businesses and restaurants - with gift certificates, etc.
Experiences - have a beach house or cabin that you would be willing to donate a weekend at? Tickets to sporting or cultural events - as things open up people will love to get out!
Without your help we could not produce the programs that reach over 5,000 community members every year, vital programs like:
- monthly educational series,
- exhibitions and musical events featuring local artists,
- walking and driving tours,
- 3rd grade local history program that has been offered to Claremont schools for over 30 years,
- our popular annual home tour and more!
The importance and impact that your donations have on our community have not gone unnoticed! With COVID-19 impacting our ability to have in-person events, this Gala is more important than ever.
You are in a position to help keep it special! Please consider your donation an investment in the future of Claremont! You can make an impression in “Keeping Claremont’s History Alive” for future generations to enjoy as much as we do now!
