Part carnival, part masquerade, and très Baltimore, HISTORY IS A DRAG was the heritage area's first gala fundraiser. Held in April 2017, the event raised awareness in the BNHA's progams and raised funds for the Heritage Investment Grant program. These grants fund programming and improvement projects for our historic attractions, small museums, and community and arts organizations. We’ve seen firsthand how modest yet strategic investments can make an incredible, affirmative impact to our neighborhoods. These grants achieve more than fostering heritage tourism and spurring economic development — they help build a sense of place and pride in less-visited yet historically vibrant Baltimore neighborhoods.
THANK YOU TO THE GALA STEERING COMMITTEE!
