The museum hosts an annual fundraiser called “Pasta Premier” in the on site auditorium. Tickets must be purchased in advance. Ticket holders may also visit the museum and stroll the exhibits during the “meet and greet” session prior to dinner. The theme is Italian and along with Italian fare various wine varieties are provided. The evening includes a performance by talented local artists. A silent auction typically includes numerous attractive items for bid during the evening. The event is traditionally held on the 2nd Thursday evening in August.
