On Saturday, August 19, 2017, from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., Friends of Banning Museum will celebrate the birthday of the “Father of the Los Angeles Harbor” Phineas Banning with a special evening of music and dancing. In the spirit of the Rancho-period of the Banning property, guests will be treated to a Western-themed evening with live music provided by country band, “JB and The Big Circle Riders”, free line dance instruction, dancing and a good old fashioned barbecue buffet provided by Southland favorite, “The Outdoor Grill.”

We will also present the Phineas Banning Entrepreneurial Spirit Award to Amy Grat, CEO of International Trade Education Programs (ITEP).  ITEP prepares students for a better life. Through partnerships with ports, transportation, logistics and related industries, ITEP introduces high school students to diverse career opportunities in high growth job sectors.
