WEST AKRON — Stan Hywet Hall & Gardens’ 17th annual gala, Midsummer Night’s Celebration, took place June 22 with the theme of “A Gilded Evening.”

The fundraising event, presented by PNC, was an interpretation of the estate’s yearlong theme, “The Art of Living Beautifully.”

According to event officials, the event, which was chaired by Chris and Rich Kramer, raised more than $140,000 to help to preserve the estate.

A special highlight of the evening was the live auction of a dinner in the dining room of the Manor House. This private dinner for 20 sold for $17,000, according to event officials.
