“A Night at the Museum”
“A Night at the Museum” at the Black River Academy Museum
“A Night at the Museum” is the theme of BRAM’s annual fundraiser to be held on Saturday, September 12th from 6 PM to 8:30 PM, at the museum, 14 High Street, Ludlow. Wine, beer, hearty hors d’oeuvres, live music and a wide selection of items in the silent auction will insure a fun evening. The museum will also have small “theme” baskets for a raffle as well as a “Treasure Hunt” in which people will search for ten listed items somewhere in the museum. This is a nice way to explore the museum.
Unique experiences are stressed in the silent auction, some of which are 8 Zumba classes, green fees for four at Okemo Valley Golf Club and a guided tour at Green Mountain Sugar House with 1//2 gallon of maple syrup and maple creamies for the family just to mention a few. Subway’s, Big Eye’s Bakery and Cook’s Cupboard gift certificates are also in the auction. A NYC apartment, on the Upper West Side, for three nights is also offered. The Weston Playhouse has generously donated two tickets for the main stage play along with two tickets for that night’s cabaret show. On the epicurean theme, Black River Produce has donated a lobster dinner for four with all the trimmings. There are many more items, with golf and skiing being well represented.
Mr. Darcy’s, a local restaurant, is donating all of the food that will be served and the live music has been donated by 3 To The Bar, a trio comprised of Camille and Graham Parker of Gypsy Reel and Jon Clinch, writer, songwriter and singer.
Tickets are $30 per person and can be bought at The Book Nook, The Wine and Cheese Shop or at the museum. We will be glad to hold your tickets at the door the night of the event. For more information please call 802-228-5050, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
