Sponsorships

We invite you to join us on Saturday, October 14, 2017 for Cheers to 65 Years!, a celebration of the Society’s 65th anniversary, on the grounds of the Thomas County Museum of History.  Proceeds from the annual fall fundraising dinner support the programs and operations of the Museum.  Last year, the fall dinner raised more than $26,000.00 and boasted more than twenty local individual and business sponsors.  With your support, we can make this special anniversary celebration the best yet!

We will debut the completed restoration of the 1916 American LaFrance Fire Engine, host a silent auction, and welcome guests into the newly renovated Flowers-Roberts basement. Sponsors to this event will be listed on all printed and digital marketing leading up to the event, receive special recognition at the event, and receive complimentary tickets to the event.
