Let me take a moment to express my great satisfaction with how well the Blue and Gray Benefit Dinner for the Ramage Museum went last night. We had 90 paid guests who enjoyed a wonderful talk on Abraham Lincoln by Dr. Paul Tenkotte of Northern Kentucky University and a fine meal served at The Gardens of Park Hills
We had a lot of very good items for the silent auction and they sold for some really good prices.We also received a couple of monetary donations, which, of course, are always appreciated and helpful.
Final totals are not in yet, but it looks like we should net around $3,500 for the evening, which will help with operating costs in the next fiscal year. It was an enjoyable and productive evening for the museum.
Now we just need to keep up the momentum with future events and continue to offer an outstanding experience for our visitors.
