Heard Museum North Gala Brings Back the 50s and 60s

By Myra Richman

The Heard Museum North celebrated its gala at the Tohono Center in Carefree on April 22nd. Guests were asked to travel back in relive Scottsdale of the 1950s and 1960s. It was interesting to see some of the colorful outfits and jewelry, reminiscent of 'the good 'ole days."

The evening began with a cocktail reception and silent auction in Craftman's Court Marketplace with a glorious view of the sun setting in the West, reminding all the guests of why they live in Arizona. Auction items were valued up to $3,200 for original art, clothing, jewelry and trips.

Jeff Kahn, President, Heard Museum Board of Trustees, and Frank Goodyear, Director Heard Museum gave a warm welcome to everyone for a celebration of the Heard Museum North Roy Lyon Center.

Dinner followed and then auctioneer Howard Berlin attracted a lot of attention for bidding on a bronze sculpture by Philip Haozous and an alabaster sculpture by Doug Hyde. Dancing followed to the music of Chuck E. Baby and the Allstars.

A great evening was had by all who had a chance to relive their memories of the 50s and 60s.
