Thank you for your support!

SATURDAY, JULY 29 | 6 pm

Johnny Cake Hill is one of the most historic streets in Massachusetts. It is home to the Whaling Museum, Mariners’ Home, the Seamen’s Bethel, and Captain Paul Cuffe Park. The Top of the Hill Gala celebrated the transformation along the hill and all the good things taking place in and around the museum campus.

The evening began with a welcoming reception in the Harbor View Gallery followed with a delicious dinner in the Bourne Building and From Pursuit to Preservation Galleries. Proceeds from the Top of the Hill Gala support the Museum’s educational mission, and specifically, the Museum’s High School Apprenticeship Program.

Fine dining by Russell Morin Fine Catering & Events, cocktail attire, valet parking.
