Bruce Museum's 20th Anniversary Renaissance Ball
"Jewels of India"
Greenwich, CT


On June 2, 2007, nearly 500 glamorous guests gathered at "The Ruins" at Kennelot Stables in celebration of the Bruce Museum's 20th Anniversary Renaissance Ball. This year's exotic theme, "Jewels of India," not only treated attendees to Indian-inspired decor, music and cuisine, but also honored the past chairmen of the Ball. Indian Consul General Mrs. Neelam Deo, honorary Chairman of the Ball, joined in the celebration of India
and its culture.

Ball Co-chairmen Arianne Faber Kolb, Jean Doyen de Montaillou, Laura Heery Prozes and Ellen Tobin Reid led the efforts to organize an evening to remember as well as an ambitious schedule of pre-Ball events. Scores of committee members and others joined in building enthusiasm and camaraderie with pre-Ball festivities including a special party at Baccarat, Men's Committee xx at Miller Motor Cars, Patron Party at the waterfront home of Mrs. John Weinberg for Patron and Angel ticket holders.

Under the outdoor tent, the back country Greenwich setting was transformed into a luxurious evening in India. The menu by Marcia Selden Catering began with a crisp Bengal crab cake and watermelon tower and moved on to a delectable entree of petite filet of beef with roasted tomato relish and wild mushroom bordelaise accompanied by sweet pea, carrot and chick pea confetti, golden cauliflower, baskets of warm naan, and a trio of chutneys: cilantro, red onion and tamarind. The dessert of bruleed rice with pistachio and raisins, and cardamom scented chocolate shard and pistachio brittle topped the delightful repast.

Fabulous Live Auction items, acquired under the direction of chairman Julia Berger, featured stunning Bulgari jewels, a cocktail party for 50, and trips for adventurers. Successful bidders won a bike tour of India, a magical trip to The European Fine Art Fair in the Netherlands, a thrilling stunt plane ride over San Francisco Bay
and more.

Silent auction Co-chairmen Pari Kreutter Hirsch and Lydia West gathered an amazing array of auction items to tempt all-from gourmet dinners and fitness classes to stunning jewels and paradise escapes.

As they departed, guests received gift bags the include ladies' blouses generously donated by Julie B in Greenwich.

The Renaissance Ball is the major Museum fundraiser, raising approximately 16% of the Museum's annual operating budget through ticket sales and auction purchases. Proceeds from the evening are allocated to education programs and exhibitions.
