The Brazos Valley African American Museum (BVAAM) is celebrating 15 years in the community with a birthday party this Saturday.
Matthew LeBlanc, board member, says BVAAM is also announcing a new campaign, The 500.
“We are asking 500 people in the Brazos Valley to step up and commit to donating $10 a month to the museum for the next year,” says LeBlanc.
LeBlanc says if the campaign is successful, the museum can hire a director.
“Having a director who can work with our curator to continue to ensure that we are bringing in and creating quality, top level exhibits is very important,” says LeBlanc.
LeBlanc says if you cannot commit to being one of The 500, singular donations are also greatly appreciated.
Saturday’s celebration at the museum is from 1-3 p.m.
