Fundraising Events

Celebrate the ‘can do’ spirit and rich history of the Pittsburgh region by attending an annual History Center fundraising event. From the museum’s yearly 21+ party, History Uncorked, to its black-tie gala, History Makers Award Dinner, the Smithsonian’s home in Pittsburgh is dedicated to bringing people together, preserving our shared history, and inspiring the leaders of tomorrow.
