“The Midsummer Gala is Fort Ticonderoga’s premier summertime fundraising event. Set in the splendor of the 18th-century fort and surrounded by the unspoiled natural beauty of America’s most historic landscape, attendees will revel in the historic French inspired décor, cocktails, and dinner,” said Beth Hill, Fort Ticonderoga President and CEO. “This unforgettable night supports and celebrates Fort Ticonderoga’s growing impact in the fields of education and preservation. Support to the Midsummer Gala helps underwrite Fort Ticonderoga’s educational programs that impact more than 70,000 guests annually, and more than 23,000 children.”

The Honorary Chairpersons for the Midsummer Gala are Anthony and Katherine Pell, longtime Fort Ticonderoga supporters.  Anthony Pell, the grandson of the museum founders Stephen and Sarah Pell, has spent a lifetime committed to Fort Ticonderoga’s mission and historic legacy.  He was elected as a member to the Fort Ticonderoga Association in 1960 and has served in a variety of leadership capacities on the Board of Trustees including chairman, vice chairman, secretary, and treasurer.
