On February 12th, 2021, MOD invites you to Night with the Museum honoring longtime friend, Board Member and Past President Ron Menaker.

At the AKC Museum of the Dog (MOD), we strive to educate people on the many roles dogs play in our lives, and the ways in which they have impacted our humanity. This is a mission the drives everyone at the Museum from our volunteers to our highest leadership and guidance on the board. With that in mind, we are choosing to honor Ron Menaker, one of our board members who has gone above and beyond in service and dedication to this mission. 

On February 12th, 2021, from 8 to 9 pm, MOD invites you to join our livestreamed Night with the Museum Honoring Ron Menaker. As the annual Theatre Benefit was a favorite tradition and a true testament of Ron's dedication to the Museum, we hope to continue this tradition in his honor with a virtual night of entertainment and celebration. This evening will feature behind the scenes moments from Director Alan Fausel, testimonials from community members on the Museum's impact and a silent auction! Join us for the fun filled evening featuring remarks from our gala's host Leslie Mueller, Host of the Public Television / PBS hit series, 'Museum Access'.

Tune In Here on February 12th to watch our Gala Livestream. Additional streaming will be accessible via our Facebook page.
