The event honors Ron Bourgeault for his lifetime of contributions to Historic New England and the world of American decorative arts. Ron’s passion for antiques started at an early age. For the more than thirty years he operated Northeast Auctions, he brought together collectors and the objects they treasure. A frequent guest on Antiques Roadshow, Bourgeault is a renowned national expert on American furniture and folk art. His connection to Historic New England began in the 1970s when he helped establish the Batchelder Conservation Fund. Through the years he continued working and consulting with staff, and serving on committees and as an advocate for the organization.
Join Historic New England on January 11, 2020, for a benefit dinner to celebrate Ron Bourgeault. Partygoers will enjoy a lovely evening that begins with a cocktail reception, followed by an elegant three-course dinner. The evening includes a toast to the guest of honor from Brock Jobe and Jane Nylander and a fun trivia game from the folks at Skinner, Inc.
Tickets are $550. Proceeds from the evening help to save and share Historic New England’s collection of objects and archival material – the largest assemblage of New England art and artifacts in the county.
