The Mint Museum’s Third Annual Spring Fundraising Gala Celebrates the Mint’s Fashion Collection

The Mint Museum’s spring fundraising gala is moving in a new, fashion-forward direction. Beginning this year, the Gala’s permanent theme is Coveted Couture, a nod to the museum’s heralded and significant Fashion Collection . Charlotte is a very stylish and sophisticated city. By and large, Mint supporters love fashion and recognize its growing importance as part of the vibrant arts and cultural scene in our region. This annual spring tradition is a black-tie dinner dance for 300 of Charlotte’s most prominent civic leaders, chic elite, and museum patrons.

This special evening is being presented for the third time by Bank of America and Merrill Lynch, loyal and generous corporate supporters of the museum. Marianna and Trey Sheridan are serving as Gala Chairs this year. Marianna is the Archivist for Oscar de la Renta, an Auxiliary Board Member, and fashion liaison between the Auxiliary and The Mint Museum. Trey serves on the Mint’s Board of Trustees as Treasurer. We are thrilled to have them leading this charge and know they will plan a beautiful, chic, and festive experience for all of our guests.

Coveted Couture promises to be an elegant, glamorous, and fun celebration designed to raise critical funds for The Mint Museum. We look forward to seeing you on the runway! Please mark your calendars now and join us for the most coveted event of the year. —Hillary Cooper, Director of Advancement & Communications
