Cloak yourself in mystery for our Masquerade-themed Stars gala to benefit the MAH. Stars is the museum’s largest fundraising event and a fabulous opportunity to connect with old and new friends while supporting the MAH’s future.

Enjoy the night’s festivities starting at 6pm with cocktails, appetizers, and a silent auction, followed by reserved table seating in the Solari Gallery for dinner and dessert and the incomparable Stars live auction with guest auctioneer Mike Termini. As always, our live auction will feature stunning artwork by local artists as well as only-at-Stars experience packages. Where else can you win a private tour of the Grateful Dead archives, a stunning sculpture by the County Artist of the Year, or a private dinner in a mountain wine cave… AND support the Museum’s educational programs?

Stars gala guests are invited to dance the night away as the after party blows up into a dazzling SUPERNOVA of a celebration.

Funds raised during the annual gala auction support the Museum’s exhibitions and educational programs. Please bid often and raise your paddle high. Limited tickets will be sold for the gala and are available online now.

Thank you in advance for your support!


STARS is presented by the Board of Trustees of the Santa Cruz Museum of Art and History, in partnership with our generous co-sponsors:

Santa Cruz County Bank, Mary and Harry Blanchard, John and Linda Burroughs, Rowland and Pat Rebele
