The Rosenbach  
2008-2010 Delancey Place 

Join us to celebrate beauty and growth in every corner of the Rosenbach Museum & Library’s historic house and garden. We are thrilled to honor James H. and Janet S. Averill for their years of dedication, passion, and support with an evening of drinks, a sit-down dinner, and inspiration from the Rosenbach collection. 

About the Rosenbacchanal 2023 Honorees

The Averills are an integral part of the Rosenbach’s transformation from a Philadelphia “hidden gem” to the robust, globally recognized museum it is today. The Rosenbach celebrates Jim Averill’s 14 years as a board director and his service on multiple committees throughout his tenure. The Averills’ important contribution to the Transition Fund in 2014, facilitating the merger of the Rosenbach and the Free Library of Philadelphia Foundation, brought stability and strength and ushered in a  new age for one of Philadelphia’s most important cultural treasures. In 2021, the Averills made a significant investment in the future of the Rosenbach with a capital gift to the historic garden and building. Their transformational gift allowed the Rosenbach to secure additional funding and kick off a three-phase, multi-million-dollar renovation of the buildings and garden, ensuring the world-class collection is protected for generations to come. As Jim’s final board term concludes in June, we are honored to celebrate the generosity, wisdom, and friendship of the Averills at Rosenbacchanal 2023.
