You may have noticed that we are purposeful in directing our fundraising efforts to specific needs of the Aurora History Museum and Historic Sites. This is how we will operate moving forward so that our members and contributors know where their donations are going. The 2018 fall Antique Appraisal Fair funds went to purchase the new photo clings installed on the History Museum, the 2018 Festival of Wreaths funds raised are dedicated to the Fox Theatre Center neon sign and marquee rehabilitation effort, and our April 27th Antique Appraisal Fair will raise funds for the restoration of portions of the original Gateway to Aurora sign. This year will be our 20th year for both the Antique Appraisal Fair and the Festival of Wreaths, so please help us spread the word.
We are grateful for your support and look forward to a fantastic 2019. If you have any questions or wish to speak with me about the Aurora Museum Foundation please feel free to contact me directly.
