Mark your calendar and save the date! The OPRF Museum Gala and “Heart of Our Villages” Award Ceremony is March 9, 2023. Join us for our fourth annual fundraising gala at the Nineteenth Century Club, 178 Forest Ave. We will be honoring two remarkable women—Camille Wilson White and Jan Novak Dressel— with the 2023 “Heart of Our Villages” award. Both honorees have strong ties to Oak Park and River Forest, marked by long careers in education and support for history and the arts.
The event kicks off with cocktail hour at 6:30 p.m. and the awards ceremony beginning at 7:30. Proceeds benefit the operations of The Historical Society of Oak Park and River Forest. Reserve your tickets today in our Online History Store.
