Legacy of the Plains Museum is looking festive! We rarely have to decorate – because all of the community decorates for us with this wonderful fundraiser!
Several weeks ago, various local community organizations came in with their trees and decorated them to be unique. As of December 3rd, voting began. Museum visitors can purchase their vote tickets at the museum for $1 each. Once the visitor selects their favorites, they simply put their tickets into the small red bag beside the tree.
By this Friday afternoon at 4pm, we will do a count of the tickets to determine the first, second and third prize winners who will receive a cash prize to their organization. Also, the tree which wows the board president the most will also receive a cash prize.
But that’s not all! For every ticket cast, $0.50 will go towards the museum and the other $0.50 goes towards the organization who decorated the tree. This means that even if a tree doesn’t place, they still receive half of the price of the vote ticket. Isn’t that great? Everyone is a winner in the end. This is why we highly encourage stuffing the ballot box – it supports other nonprofit organizations in the area.
