The 39th Annual Benefit Auction

  • The Museum will be closed Sunday, April 9 in observance of Easter.

Thank you so much to everyone who supported 2021's successful event! See you next year!


As our corner of the world emerges from a year of unforeseen challenges and seclusion, the Florence Griswold Museum is ready to throw one showstopper of a soirée!  

With all the glitz and glamour of an old Hollywood premiere, we can’t wait to welcome you back in grand style to our most spectacular Benefit Auction & Dinner Dance ever. After the year we’ve all had, it’s high time for the full red carpet treatment! 

While adaptations will be made for your safety, Hollywood on Lyme promises to be an elegant evening filled with all the joys of being reunited with friends, dancing under the stars, and raising a glass to this place we love. 

Our most important and highly-anticipated fundraiser of the year! It’s just the kind of night we’ve all been waiting for – and one we won’t soon forget.

It has long been our Manager of Youth Education & Outreach Julie Riggs’ dream to have a “Flo on the Go” van to fill with supplies for all her wonderful outreach projects. You can help us purchase and outfit an educational outreach vehicle, which will be shared by our curatorial team to transport works of art.

Help us put wheels to Miss Julie’s dream!
