Arizona Costume Institute will host its annual holiday luncheon, a fashion fundraising event for the Phoenix Art Museum.
The event raises vital support for fashion-design exhibitions, education programs, and acquisitions at the museum. This year’s event will feature designer Jonathan Simkhai and will celebrate the philanthropic efforts and achievements of Honorary Chair Eileen Yeung.
The luncheon takes place at 10:30 a.m. Monday, Dec. 4 inside Cummings Great Hall at the Phoenix Art Museum, 1625 N. Central Ave.
Yeung is a Phoenix native, a graduate of the University of Arizona, and a longtime supporter of the Phoenix Art Museum.
She served on the Phoenix Art Museum board of trustees from 1996 to 2011 and was also active in the museum’s Circles of Support program during that time period. From 2013–2018, she was a member of the museum’s Asian Arts Council, during which time she served as both president of the support group and co-chair of its gala.
