Thank you to everyone who helped sell all of the tickets for our Ladies Night Out annual fundraiser for the museum. We are still humming some of the Doo Wops tunes! A special thank you to all of our sponsors – with your help and support this event was again well received. If you enjoyed yourself we hope you will join us for some of our upcoming events:
