24th Annual Bacchanal Wine Gala and Auction

Thank you for your support of the 24th Annual Bacchanal Wine Gala and Auction!

The 24th Annual Bacchanal Wine Gala and Auction was held on Saturday, November 12, 2022 at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. 

Bacchanal is PAFA’s signature fundraising event supporting world-class art and artmaking in Philadelphia. This year, we were thrilled to honor philanthropists Jamie and Kristin Biddle, the artistic achievement of Jonathan Lyndon Chase (MFA ’16), and the excellent winemaking legacy of Jackson Family Wines. Guests enjoyed a gourmet dinner by Featured Chef Pierre Calmels, expertly paired with premier wines. The celebration was topped off with bids on an array of distinctive auction items and an evening of dancing!

Support of Bacchanal advances PAFA’s tradition of excellence in American art—from the legacies of Violet Oakley, Henry Ossawa Tanner, and Barkley L. Hendricks to today’s brightest creative talents including Njideka Akunyili Crosby and David Lynch. Since its inception, Bacchanal has raised more than $10 million in support of PAFA’s emerging artists.
