The guests of the Met Gala were asked to make donations instead of receiving refunds from this year’s event.

The annual donation gala was recently canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic, and Anna Wintour’s team from Vogue magazine turned to ticket holders to encourage them to donate to the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s costume institute.

A source reported the New York Post column: “With the global arts and culture community and the Met suffering tremendous losses as a result of the pandemic and the Met Gala being the main source of funding for the Costume Institute, they hope guests will consider purchasing their tickets for this Generously converting the fundraising campaign into a donation or transferring tickets for the gala next year. “If this is not possible, the money will of course be refunded.”

A variety of famous faces were again ready to take part in the annual bash in New York City. Ticket prices for the gala are up to $ 300,000 per table or $ 30,000 for a single ticket.

Earlier this month the organizers of the event announced that they were being canceled due to the “global health crisis”.

Daniel H. Weiss, the president of the museum, added: “The Met has experienced a lot in its 150 years and is today a beacon of hope for the future.

“This museum is also a deep reminder of the strength of the human spirit and the power of art, comfort, inspiration and community to offer.

“In the face of these challenging and uncertain times, we look forward to the day when we can welcome everyone back to enjoy the Met’s collection and exhibitions.”
