Party proceeds support the ongoing restoration of the Custom House, a superb example of Richardsonian Romanesque Architecture. The Society, founded in 1949, opened the Custom House as Key West's premier museum in 1999 afer a 9 year, $9 million restoration project. The monies raised from the evening will support updating the building's aging mechanical systems, which are required to preserve the building and collections.
