Memphis, TN – The Cotton Museum is pleased to announce the 6th Annual Season Starter Party will be held from 5:00pm – 7:30pm at Bounty On Broad, located at 2519 Broad Ave., on April 23, 2017.
Join us to celebrate the beginning of a new growing season! At the Season Starter Party, we’ll also kick-off our yearly membership drive for Individual Members and Corporate Members. Guests will enjoy hors d’oeuvres, cocktails, and a whiskey tasting.
The Season Starter Party is great time for members and friends of The Cotton Museum to get together and to help fund the Museum’s programs throughout the year. All proceeds from the event go to support the work of The Cotton Museum, enabling us to connect with the next generation of Memphians through our educational programs and engage our city’s youth with our shared history.
The Season Starter Party is open to the public with registration available via The Cotton Museum website http://memphiscottonmuseum.org/ssp. Registration is free for members of The Cotton Museum. In addition to purchasing a membership online, guests may also purchase a membership at the door the day of the event. The Cotton Museum is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit and your membership purchase or donation is tax-deductible.
Matt Hicks, Office Manager of The Cotton Museum, said, “We’re excited about the start of another year at The Cotton Museum. We’ve got a full calendar of events planned and look forward to expanding our outreach and educational efforts during the coming year and telling the story of cotton—the plant that changed the American South and the world.”
The 6th 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.
