The Arab American National Museum (AANM) hosts its Grand Gala, themed Many Voices, One Song, at The Henry in Dearborn! Presented by the Friends of AANM, the Grand Gala honors AANM’s singular role as the first and only museum dedicated to preserving and sharing Arab American history, art and culture while building bridges between communities nationwide.

Throughout the year, AANM provides engaging and accessible educational and cultural programming to keep the Arab American community connected, proud and visible. AANM thoughtfully addresses the challenges of the present by serving as a necessary resource to educators, children and youth, researchers, musicians, artists, filmmakers, and thousands more through free and accessible in-person and online programming. Your support has allowed AANM to continue providing free school tours, engaging K-12 students with interactive experiences that expand their knowledge of and appreciation for Arab American history, art, and culture.

The Grand Gala is more than a fundraiser; it is a reunion of our resilient Arab American community, bringing everyone together in Dearborn, the heart of Arab America. Join us this year at the spectacular Henry Hotel for an exciting evening.
