Summer Fundraiser 2020 – VIRTUAL

Wednesday, August 12, 2020
6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Thank you to everyone who helped make our Summer Fundraiser a success! Because of your generosity, we not only reached our goal but surpassed it, raising $22,000 through the auction, raffle, and donations. Your support means so much to all of us at the Museum and every dollar raised makes a difference in the lives of the community members we serve.

We would also like to say congratulations to all our auction winners! If you haven’t already been contacted about picking up your auction items, please be sure to check your email over the next few days. You can also contact Kristen Boddy at 828.253.3227 x117 or by email to arrange for a pickup and final payment, if necessary. Finally, it is our pleasure to announce that Susanne Loar is the winner of the raffle featuring works by Michael Hofman and Shane Fero.

We cannot begin to express our gratitude for your support of the Museum during this challenging time. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have now been closed for more than five months. However, it’s because of donors like you that we remain hopeful for the future and committed to providing innovative programming and world-class exhibitions. Thank you! And if you missed our fundraiser but would still like to make a gift to the Museum, please visit the Support page on our website.

Thank You to Our Sponsors

As a nonprofit organization, the Museum relies on the generous support of our community members. Without you, we couldn’t do what we do—offer exciting exhibitions and engaging programs throughout the year.

The Museum hosts a number of popular benefit events each year including an annual gala and more.
