Red Rooster Bash

Thursday, November 9, 2017
6:30pm until 10:00pm

Roosters are immersed throughout the decor, and the casualness of the evening fits in with the atmosphere of the museum.  Everyone is encouraged to sport their country western attire. Guests will enjoy a cocktail hour and have the opportunity to bid on silent auction items.  A live auction will follow. Tickets will go on sale in October.

Special Fee: $65 per person, $120 per couple.
