Who says fundraisers can’t be exciting? The Rye Historical Society’s annual gala was a carnival of fun, complete with stilt walkers, a fire-eater, and games for all under a big tent. Over 200 guests stepped right up for a magical evening co-chaired by Claudine Hanley, Jennifer Molloy, and Jeanine Scott at the home of Lisa and Mark Keegan June 3.
