Pilot Club

The Hudson River Maritime Museum Pilot Club is a fundraising club consisting of members who support the museum at the $1,000 level or above. Each year in the fall the museum hosts the annual Pilot Club Gala, a fundraising dinner with live auction and raffle to raise money for museum operations and special projects. In addition, the museum publishes the Pilot Log, an annual booklet which contains historical articles, photos, and advertisements from supporting businesses and organizations.

Thank you to everyone who made our 2013 Pilot Club Gala the most successful in many years! We completely sold out of tickets and made significant contributions to our operating funds. Our “Great Gatsby” theme was a big hit and many folks went all out in their costuming and the Big Band Sound 20-piece jazz band was wonderful.

The 2014 Pilot Club Gala will take place next September, so mark your calendars and look for an invitation next summer. Want to ensure you get an invitation? Become a member today.
