The Petersen invites you to join us for our 25th Anniversary Gala as we spend the night Celebrating Silver, Going for Gold and look toward our shared future. As our biggest fundraiser of the year, the evening promises to be an exciting night for all. By attending L.A.’s “Automotive Party of the Year” you will make a significant impact on your community and on an essential global institution, all while enjoying an evening with legends from the automotive world. The festive night will feature food by the famed Drago brothers, unparalleled entertainment and a chance to win superb once-in-a-lifetime experiences during the live auction.
Each year, proceeds from the gala provide essential support for all that we do at the Petersen, from groundbreaking exhibitions to providing essential STEAM-based education to under served students of Los Angeles and more.
