Our Honorees

Join us in honoring Patrick Connors, Christine Lafuente, and Paul DuSold at the Philadelphia Sketch Club’s 158th Anniversary Gala.

Each honoree will be presented with a Sketch Club Medal for their achievements in the visual arts. Events include the medal presentations, live auction, silent auction, cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, buffet, music and excessive merriment and camaraderie.

Open to Everyone

Event tickets are available to the public and to all Sketch Club members. Members are encouraged to make this important fundraising event successful by encouraging their friends to attend. Contributions from those who cannot attend are also helpful to the cause.

Looking for other ways to help? The Sketch Club is looking for silent auction items, so if you know someone who could donate an item, please let us know. We are also seeking advertisers for the event booklet.

Live Auction

The live auction will include artworks by the honorees as well as some donated historical works by past Sketch Club members. More details about the Live Auction are coming soon.
