Join us for an evening of celebration and philanthropy to support our mission of preserving and protecting Charlestown’s historic character.
A ticket includes drinks, passed hors d’oeuvres and live musical entertainment at the grandest residential building in Charlestown – rarely open to the public.
Our fundraising success would not be possible without the support of our members. A friend of CPS receives a ticket to the gala, and a one year membership to the Charlestown Preservation Society for you or to gift. Additionally it includes access to a pre-Gala tour of the private quarters of the Commandant’s House with fine wine tasting.
All proceeds benefit the Charlestown Preservation Society, further enabling our mission of protecting our historic architecture and landscapes, advocating for preservation, guiding responsible development and educating people about the unique character of our community.
If you’re unable to attend our Gala, but still want to support our work, make a donation today!
