MARC Summer Soiree Gala & Fundraiser

There will be more fun and excitement at the Museum & Archives of Rockingham County’s annual Summer Soirée with this year’s theme, “Moonlight & Magnolias.” The gala will feature both a silent and a live auction and will be held Saturday evening, August 15, 2015 at Pennrose Park Country Club in Reidsville. The event begins at 6:00 p.m. with a social hour, allowing guests to peruse the auction items in preparation for an evening of exciting bidding. Dress is cocktail attire.

Tickets are $50 per person and may be purchased at the museum or on the museum web site, www.theMARConline.org or ordered by calling the MARC at (336) 634-4949. Table sponsorships are available. To order tickets or reserve a table for 10, click here.

Net proceeds of the event are used to support the ongoing work of the Museum & Archives of Rockingham County, including operating expenses, fascinating exhibitions of our county history, and quality educational programs for both adults and children. The museum’s operations are mostly funded by private donations and the success of this event is vital to continue the momentum the MARC has created since opening.

The event will once again feature an exciting raffle. The holder of this year’s winning ticket will choose one of three trips for two. All trips include air fare and hotel accommodations for two (2). You do not have to be present to win.
