Making History Gala- Update!

Monday Apr 6th, 2020

Join us for the Making History Gala as the Hagen History Center celebrates the opening of the first floor of its new exhibit building on Thursday, July 9, 2020.  (Note the date has been changed to July 9.)  The gala will unveil this new jewel on West 6th Street and its place in Erie’s rich history.  

Thomas B. Hagen is the honorary chairperson of this event and he invites the community to join him at this campus-wide party which will be quite a celebration.

Time to be announced. You won’t want to miss this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be first to see the new  building and the exhibit at this gala celebration.

This fundraising gala will support operational costs for the new building. 

A stellar committee has been planning this gala since December 2019.  Committee members include Noel Burgoyne, Geri Cicchetti, Michelee Curtze, Mili Chiang-Hanes, Sally DiBacco, Becky Fechner, Shelby Graml, Dennis Howard, Bonnie Kern, Sara Little, Lynn McBrier, Deborah Murphy, Leah Murphy, Laura Semple, Barbara Shapira, Cheryl Vicary, and Gwendolyn White.  We are very appreciative of all the efforts of the committee members.

Join us in making history and being first to see the new building and the national exhibit.   For information on sponsorships or tickets contact Hagen History Center at gcicchetti@eriehistory.org or 814-454-1813 x 34.
