In addition to live and silent auctions, the Museum will continue its tradition of raising money for the Opening Doors for Schoolchildren fund, which provides free Museum admission and bus transportation stipends for organized school groups from public, private, tribal and home schools across the state.
As a new initiative to help raise money for the Opening Doors for Schoolchildren fund, raffle tickets are being sold for an "Overnight at the Museum." Raffle tickets are available for purchase, and the cost is $10 per ticket or $25 for three tickets. The winner will be announced at the Ball. The raffle prize includes:
