Blackhawk Museum set for Night at the Museum fundraising gala

Event to benefit Children’s Educational and Transportation Fund and educational programs

The Blackhawk Museum in Danville is once again hosting its Night at the Museum fundraising gala, with this year’s theme being “Diamonds in Danville.”

Set to be held on Sunday night, this year’s celebration will feature dinner, drinks and a performance by Jack Wright who will tell ““The Songs and Stories of Neil Diamond,” with funds being raised for a good cause.

Ticket sales raise funds for the museum's various educational programs and its Children's Education and Transportation Fund, which helps provide school groups from around the Bay Area funding for the transportation costs to the museum.

Prior to the evening’s musical entertainment, guests will have the opportunity to participate in a no host cocktail reception, a silent auction and a three course sit down dinner.

Tickets are $150 and can be purchased online, at the museum’s reception desk, by calling 736-2277 x150 or via email to
