The Galena Foundation
The Galena Foundation was formed more than 30 years ago by a group of Galenians wishing to preserve the heritage and history of Galena. Today it is guided by the Foundation’s mission to initiate and/or provide financial support for community projects which preserve, enhance, or nurture Galena’s heritage, culture and quality of life. Best of Galena is proud to sponsor The Galena Foundation in their efforts to keep the historic beauty of Galena alive for the visitors of the area to enjoy for generations to come.
One of their most anticipated fundraising events of the year is the “Galena Foundation Concert” held at Turner Hall featuring Hunter Fuerste and His American Vintage Orchestra. For the 2017 event, Best of Galena sponsored a table and invited members from organizations we support including The Workshop, Galena EMS, and the Galena Volunteer Fire Department, to thank them for their work in the Community and to enjoy a night of music in an iconic piece of of Galena architecture.
