The newest of SAMA’s major fundraisers, Night of Distinction debuted in 2012 as a venue to honor the Museum’s most benevolent patrons and those individuals, businesses and organizations that make an outstanding commitment to furthering the arts in their communities. The event features dinner, as well as presentation of SAMA’s Trustees Emeritus, Volunteerism and Service to the Arts awards recipients. The 2018 program will commence at the Loretto Museum on April 21. The Service to the Arts Award will be presented to Bonnie Hoffman, and Judy and Dick Scholton will receive the Volunteerism Award. Fred Danziger is the recipient of the Award for Artistic Distinction, and the Museum will present two Awards for Architectural Excellence to Blair County Courthouse and Saint Francis University's Schwab Hall. Also being recognized will be Mary Weidlein, who will be honored with Trustee Emerita distinction.
