Discovery Gala & Auction

Discovery Gala & Auction. (coming soon!)

The History Center of Niagara is preparing for a special summer evening dining al fresco in historic downtown Lockport within sight of the Erie Canal on Saturday, August 17th. Guests at the annual Discovery Gala & Auction will be treated to delicious cuisine, with table seating, catered by the award-winning, Shamus Restaurant.  To add to the excitement of the festivities, there will be a live and silent auction of a great assortment of antiques, paintings by regional artists, themed baskets as well as several spectacular entertainment and dining packages.  Also included in the auction is a great complement of sports memorabilia personally signed by local former NFL star quarterback, Jim Kelly. Our auctioneer for the evening is Niagara County Sheriff James Voutour. And, for our guests’ listening pleasure, music will be played throughout the evening by the Buffalo jazz ensemble, Pro Bono.


Menu selections will be served from several themed stations and will include Teriyaki Chicken Satay, Shrimp Wrapped with Bacon, Roast Beef, Turkey and Mozzarella Crestinis; Vegetable Pizza, assorted Canapés, and much more. Accompanying the fine foods will be a grand selection of wine from Schulze Vineyards & Winery and craft beer from Flying Bison Brewery.  After the meal, attendees will enjoy an assortment of desserts provided by Lindt Chocolate or make an Ice Cream Sundae generously provided by Lake Effect Artisan Ice Cream.


For over 90 years, The History Center of Niagara has been devoted to preserving and protecting the history of Niagara County and the Erie Canal.  The proceeds raised for the Discovery Gala & Auction will be used to develop and expand the many adult and children’s education programs conducted during the year. Gala attendees are also welcome to enjoy the latest exhibit of art and artifacts at the Penney Gallery, which explains the life and times of local philanthropist and collector, Charles Rand Penney.


The History Center is hoping that everyone who enjoys good food and the fun of a great auction will plan now to attend. Tickets for the August 17, Discovery Gala & Auction fundraiser, are priced at $50 each and can be purchased at the Discovery Center, 24 Church Street, Lockport.
