Annual Fundraisers

Every year we hold two fundraisers, one in the summer and the other in late fall, and the proceeds from these help to sustain the Museum throughout the year. Party themes and locations vary year to year, but gathering with friends is always a constant.

Our summer fundraiser in 2021 will celebrate our 30th season: check HERE for more details.

In 2020 we adapted to virtual fundraising, and would like to thank our donors from both our Summer Virtual Party and 12 Days of Bidwell Bidding, our winter online action.
