On June 17, 2009, the Guggenheim Museum and the exhibition Frank Lloyd Wright: From Within Outward, provided the venue for a spectacular event benefitting the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation(FLWF). The benefit dinner raised more than half-a-million dollars for the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation's School of Architecture, noted Archives, and K-12 educational programs.

At the event, the Foundation honored Peter B. Lewis, chairman of Progressive Insurance Company and the former chairman of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation; Bruce Brooks Pfeiffer, director of the Frank Lloyd Wright Archives and a curator of the Wright exhibition; and Mark Keane, professor of department of architecture and director of the Frank Lloyd Wright Initiative at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.  Paul Goldberger, architecture critic for The New Yorker magazine gave the keynote address to a capacity audience that filled the Guggenheim's rotunda.
