Just a quick follow up to my recent posts about the fundraising efforts for the Bead Museum of Arizona — as of May 1st, the museum had raised $67,000. As a result, the board has decided not to close the doors! They’re not out of the woods just yet, but it means there is time and hope — both of which are precious. You can read more about it at the Bead Museum AZ website. Phoenix area residents, please take note of the upcoming fundraiser on May 28th.
I’d also like to thank the people who bid on the benefit auctions that I listed for the museum last month – I really appreciate your support! The Bead Museum of AZ has recently signed up for eBay’s Giving Works program, so please consider listing or bidding on a few of these auctions too! If the Bead Community pulls together on this one, we can ensure that there will be a Bead Museum for future generations to enjoy.
