The O What A Night! Gala is the Ogden Museum's annual fundraiser. A celebration of the American South, the O What A Night! Gala is one of the premier events in the region.

The gala weekend begins with a Patron Party on Thursday night, which is held at a different private residence each year and will be catered for the third year in a row by Chef Justin Devillier of La Petite Grocery and Balise.

On Saturday night, the gala begins with a large silent auction in the Patrick F. Taylor Library, where guests arrive, mingle, and bid while partaking in cocktails and appetizers by Justin Devillier of La Petite Grocery and Balise. Moving from the Taylor Library into the gala tent, guests will enjoy musical and artistic surprises before being seated for a dinner by Donald Link of Link Restaurant Group and a live auction, with major works of art by important Southern artists available.


This year’s gala co-chairs are Tracy Copeland and Tommy Westervelt.
