Thursday, October 8

6:30pm - 7:30pm

Lyndhurst’s annual gala, which originally would have been held at the end of May, is an important source of funds for operations, programs and restoration. As an alternative to the gala we are presenting a virtual gala on October 8th, 2020 for those who would like to continue their support of our efforts.

Join us online for an exclusive preview of Lyndhurst’s newest landscape restorations and special exhibitions. You’ll explore the interior of the newly stabilized swimming pool building and preview a major contemporary art installation featuring 70-foot curtains of cast latex suspended from the ceiling above the empty swimming pool.

Take a virtual stroll through the recently replanted lower landscape paths with Executive Director, Howard Zar and view the new exhibition in our historic bowling pavilion which illustrates how Madam C. J. Walker and Helen Gould championed women’s economic independence at the turn of the century. We will conclude with recorded music by Westchester resident, Aaron Copland. Your ticket purchase supports our ongoing restoration efforts and Lyndhurst’s continued operations.

If you do not wish to attend the virtual event you can also donate to our gala fundraiser. In light of our Tropical Storm Isaias’ damage and our ongoing efforts to restore our historic landscape, a gift of any size contributes greatly to ongoing our efforts.

Purchase Tickets
