Evening Details

The Midtsommer Gala celebration is our annual fundraising event set near the summer solstice each year. The Gala dinner features our Going Viking Awards which celebrate individuals who inspire their communities to explore and discover new frontiers with courage, determination, and drive. The event raises key funds that support all Norway House programs throughout the year. Join us this year as we reflect upon last year's accomplishments and look to the year's ahead.
