Into Utopia 2023 Gala – Reginald F. Lewis Museum

The Reginald F. Lewis Museum of Maryland African American History & Culture looked to the future for the theme of this year’s fundraising gala, “Into Utopia,” honoring several prominent Marylanders for their visionary thinking…and encouraging guests to add a little fantasy to their fashion for the night. The party – held at M&T Bank Stadium’s north club level – began with a cocktail hour, followed by dinner, awards and more celebrating.
