AIA Saving Ancient Places Benefit Evening

Archaeologists find the keys to understanding our human past.  They work tirelessly to excavate sites, advocate for their preservation, and educate the world about our shared cultural heritage.  This is a mission that needs your help.  The Trustees of the Archaeological Institute of America (AIA) invite you to join us in New York City at Three Sixty in Tribeca on April 21, 2015 for the Saving Ancient Places Benefit Evening.

The event will begin with live music and exotic culinary delights and libations.  Guests will make their way through an interactive gallery exhibit of AIA-supported archaeological sites across the globe and one-of-a-kind works of art that have been specially crafted for the silent auction. Next, partake in a banquet of unique cultural cuisine and support archaeology by bidding on the most exclusive travel experiences in our live auction.

There are many ways to support the AIA’s largest fundraiser of the year!  You can purchase tickets to attend the event and bid on auction items that evening.  For those who cannot attend you can still support the cause by participating in the pre-event online auction.  Live and silent auction items are being added to our online auction gallery every week.  Please visit the bidding site before planning your next dream vacation or adding a new piece to your art collection.  Proceeds from the auction of these generously donated items will support the AIA’s mission: Excavate, Educate, and Advocate.  To date, nearly a quarter of a million people have joined us in our cause.

Whether you are meeting us for the first time or are a longtime supporter, this is a party that everyone should attend!  Individuals can purchase seats or show a higher level of support by purchasing a table. Corporations and institutes can also purchase tables and become sponsors of the event.  Visit us to purchase tickets, or email Emily Maskas at
