Santa Monica History Museum Gala To Honor The Guerboians:

The Santa Monica History Museum will hold its annual Gala Tribute Benefit Dinner next Sunday, Sept. 20 at the Casa del Mar Hotel.

The evening will feature a silent auction, entertainment, and various surprises. Organizers promise it to be a fun evening.

The event gives the museum the opportunity to honor and recognize those who have been a part of history making in the community.

Monika White is Chair of the event; Rob Schwenker will serve as the Master of Ceremonies. The museum said it is proud to announce that the honorees are Eddie and Evelyn Guerboian, long-time prominent and active community members. The Guerboians have served numerous non-profit organizations. Eddie served five years as board chair of the Santa Monica History Museum.

Each has received special awards for their distinguished service. Eddie is the proud owner of Readers Fine Jewelers. The theme of the event is “It’s Time To Celebrate.”

The event will celebrate the birthdays and recognize the City of Santa Monica for its 140th, the Santa Monica History Museum’s 40th and the Santa Monica Bay Woman’s Club’s 110th.

The City developed from a Spanish land grant to one of the renowned and popular cities in the world.

The museum’s major projects include saving Santa Monica’s oldest brick building, the first City Hall (now a landmark) from demolition, sponsored the first archaeological dig in Santa Monica, and did the research and requirements that gave the Santa Monica Bay Woman’s Club landmark status. The Woman’s Club has carried out its mission of the advancement in all lines of culture, education, child welfare, social services and philanthropy.

During WWI and WWII, it made significant contributions to the war effort.
