A Celebration of the Stax Museum’s 20th Anniversary
Fashioned to replace our beloved Staxtacular event that raised over $1 million over 10 years with help from hosts the Memphis Grizzlies, the inaugural Night Train gala, to be held April 29, 2023 in celebration of the Stax Museum of American Soul Music’s 20th Anniversary, is now the Soulsville Foundation's largest fundraiser of the year.
It’s a lavish party reminiscent of the days when the main means of travel was by rail and Pullman Porters traveled with Black Americans from coast to coast. A celebration of African American music and culture, it will feature the Stax Museum filled with live music, a silent auction, fantastic cuisine, cocktails, dancing, DJs, and more, all in our newly renovated lobby, gift shop, and mid-century modern lounge, as well as Studio A, Isaac Hayes' gold-trimmed Cadillac exhibit, and other spaces.
“We are going to have as many Stax artists as possible at this gala,” said Soulsville President & CEO Pat Mitchell Worley, “because without them and their contributions to the music world, the Soulsville Foundation wouldn’t exist. We wouldn’t have been able to educate and mentor the thousands of young people we have. This is going to be a great party to show off our new renovations, exhibit upgrades, and much more.”
