Night @ the Museum

Come have some soul food and old-fashioned fun!

We are doing a southern style fish fry. You do not want to miss a Texas-style blackberry pie. Come one, come all for a fun evening at the museum. We will be playing cards…so if you enjoy playing Bid Whist, bring your ‘A-game’ and good sportsmanship. If you are interested in playing dominoes for fun, this fundraiser event is for you. We will also have a 50/50 raffle and a silent auction.

All proceeds go towards helping make MOCHA matter.
