It has emerged over time as one of the leading repositories of Western art and culture in the world from its perch atop Persimmon Hill, yet this bastion of art and culture has never held an event for its own benefit. That changes this month when Ace High makes its debut. “Ace High is new among the museum’s great lineup of events,” says board member Bob Allee. “It allows a local audience to support the museum in a fun atmosphere. Proceeds will help fund operations and programs and ensure the values and artifacts of the West are available for generations to come.” The evening begins with cocktails, followed by dinner prepared by Rococo. Among a substantial variety of items up for bid is a day as an oil baron, in which the winner will receive all profits from one day’s operation of the oldest working well in Oklahoma.
