The Cotton Museum to Hold 10th Annual Harvest Party on November 19, 2016
Memphis, TN – The Cotton Museum is pleased to announce the 10th Annual Harvest Party will be held from 7:00pm – midnight at The Warehouse, located at 36 GE Patterson Ave., on November 19, 2016.
The Harvest Party is The Cotton Museum’s biggest fundraiser of the year, with good times guaranteed! At this year’s event guests will enjoy live music from the Earnestine & Hazel’s Band, dancing, classic Memphis food, a silent auction and, of course, an open bar. All proceeds from this fabulous event benefit the work of The Cotton Museum, enabling us to connect with the next generation of Memphians, expand our Educational Programming, and engage our city’s youth with our shared history.
The Harvest Party is open to the public with tickets available for purchase through The Cotton Museum website memphiscottonmuseum.org. Tickets are $75.00 for members of The Cotton Museum and Carnival Memphis, and $100.00 for non-members. In addition to purchasing tickets online, guests may also purchase tickets at the door the night of the event. The Cotton Museum is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit and a portion of the ticket price is tax-deductible.
In addition to purchasing tickets, guests can also take their support to the next level by becoming a Harvest Party VIP. Our exclusive VIP package includes admission and reserved seating for eight with a table at the center of the action!
Matt Hicks, Office Manager of The Cotton Museum, said, “We’ve had a busy year at The Cotton Museum, broadening our staff, adding docents and gift shop associates, serving our visitors, and telling the story of cotton—the plant that changed the American South and the world. As we celebrate this year’s harvest, we invite the community to join us for a night of merriment at the Harvest Party to laugh, eat, drink, and support The Cotton Museum work in the coming year.”
The 10th Annual Harvest Party would not be possible without the generous support of our Corporate Members. The Cotton Museum would like to give special thanks to all our Corporate Members, including Allenberg Cotton Co., Bayer Crop Science, Cargill, Henry Turley Company, and Monsanto.
About The Cotton Museum
At the historic Cotton Museum in downtown Memphis we’re re-discovering the American South and telling the dynamic story of the plant that built the Bluff City. The Museum is located on the historic floor of the Memphis Cotton Exchange – where cotton traders once stood at the center of the global cotton economy. Since opening its doors in 2006, the Cotton Museum has attracted nearly 100,000 visitors from across the country and around the world, and established itself as the most important national museum devoted to preserving and interpreting the story of the plant that shaped our shared history.
