Founders Award Dinner

The Founders Award Dinner is HHT’s trademark event.  It raises critical funds to support our work to preserve our houses, serve their communities, promote their work, strengthen the capacity of their staff and protect their collections.  Our gala unites HHT Board and Directors’ Council members, elected and appointed officials, cultural enthusiasts, corporate supporters, representatives from our member houses and NYC history buffs to celebrate these treasured sites.

2020– Due to the outbreak of COVID-19, we have postponed our 2020 gala until June of 2021. While our annual fundraiser cannot take place this year, we still need your financial support to ensure that HHT has the strength to face the challenges ahead. Click here to support our work!
