Metlar-Bodine House Museum (Circa 1728) Presents Cocktails with Keno & Live Auction
Saturday, April 7, 2018 at 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
The Metlar-Bodine House Museum (Circa 1728) Presents “Cocktails with Keno” – 2018 Spring Benefit
A live auction with special guest auctioneer Leigh Keno of Antiques Roadshow, as well as a silent auction, will accompany live music for listening & dancing and a wine tasting with certified sommelier Brian Hammill, who will present a variety of quality wines to complement the delicious hors d’oeuvre menu.
The event will support our $2 million “Our Plan is Revolutionary” campaign to expand our State & National Registered Historic Site, reestablish exhibits harmed by a 2003 fire and endow the museum’s operation well into the 21st century.
The planned expansion will accommodate a significant artifact, the Ross Hall Wall, an American treasure salvaged from General George Washington’s Piscataway headquarters where, in July 1778, immediately following the Battle of Monmouth, he wrote the military order for the Continental Army to celebrate July 4th in the first organized expression of Independence Day, a tradition we celebrate to this very day!
