On Saturday, November 14, 2020, the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts will virtually celebrate its 22nd Annual Bacchanal Wine Gala and Auction. Bacchanal is the only premier wine event in the Philadelphia region, and it is PAFA's largest fundraiser, bringing in over $500,000 annually. Since the event's inception, Bacchanal has raised over $9 million to support student scholarships.
This year, we are pleased to recognize Rosemary and Bill Hankowsky as this year's philanthropist honoree. Rosemary is a longstanding member of the Women's Committee and Bill has served on the Board of Trustees since 2013 and currently serves as Co-Chair of the Development Committee. During the program, guests will also honor PAFA alumna Sarah McEneaney Cert. '79, the recipient of this year's artist award. This year's Wine Honoree is Sonoma-based Donelan Family Wines.
Due to the current public health concerns, November's Bacchanal will be presented as a virtual gala. A live program will be streamed online for guests to enjoy from home, and will include an online silent auction of premium items. To enhance the experience, gourmet food baskets from Constellation Catering and specialty wines will be delivered to each guest's home.
We hope you will raise a glass with us at Bacchanal 2020, and continue to help support student scholarships for PAFA's talented and dedicated student artists.
Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Erica Land, Director of Development Events, at email@example.com or 215-972-2103.
