The 50th Anniversary Celebration of Ruthmere Museum is a once in a lifetime event!  Everyone is aware that Ruthmere knows how to throw a party, but what happens when we celebrate several milestones honoring the past while at the same time revealing the vision for a new exciting future addition to Ruthmere Campus?  This event is full and we will see you there!  

September 8, 2023 from 7-10pm will be THE PARTY for 2023!

There will be no auctions--just a night to celebrate 50 years of notable past memories, a glimpse of Ruthmere's new engaging future, and a chance to say "Thank You!" to our generous underwriters who are making this all possible. 

Parking will be at the First Presbyterian Church and the evening will be held at Ruthmere Mansion with a Garden Party and Open House.   Evening includes open top shelf bar by Navarre Hospitality, heavy gourmet hors d'oeuvres from Essence of Elkhart, Navarre Hospitality, and desserts by the kitchen of Hotel Elkhart.  The evening will feature open house tours and music by the Notre Dame String Trio and the Janet Hines Norris Band.  Business formal attire for guests.
