On Saturday, November 8, 2014, the ROM is hosting an important fundraising event at the Museum. The ROM Centennial Ball, co-chaired by Bonnie Brooks, Chair of the ROM Board of Trustees and Senator Nicole Eaton, will celebrate the Museum’s one hundred years with our philanthropic community and raise $700,000 (net) in important funds that will be used to support the Museum’s highest priorities.
As the ROM prepares to celebrate its Centennial beginning this March, I have been reflecting on the year that’s just passed and all the inspiring activity that’s taken place at the Museum.
Following an extensive international search, the Museum has hired Dr. Xerxes Mazda as Deputy Director, Engagement.
The ROM may be the most romantic place in the city this Valentine’s Day. We scan the collection for signs of Cupid… and find they are everywhere.

Spring has sprung at the ROM, and as the season suggests, there are plenty of new things popping up around the Museum.
