The 2021 Gravediggers’ Ball


OCTOBER 15, 2021

at the

University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology

The Gravediggers’ Ball is the biggest annual fundraiser for the Friends of Laurel Hill & West Laurel Hill Cemeteries, and proceeds from this event support our work as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charitable organization. Founded in 1836, Laurel Hill is the first cemetery in the United States to become a National Historic Landmark; West Laurel Hill, established in 1869, is on the National Register of Historic Places. Both cemeteries are unparalleled in their history, art, architecture, and landscape, and our mission of preserving and protecting these historic sites has never been more relevant given their power to provide solace, strength and connection at times of such need.

Ticket and Sponsorship information forthcoming.
