 Annual fundraising dinner sponsorship

2018 Fundraising Dinner Sponsorship Package (insert document link) On Saturday, November 3, 2018 the Grimsby Museum is hosting its 26th annual fundraising dinner at The Casablanca Winery Inn. The evening includes a reception, an interesting and informative speaker, and a four-course gourmet dinner. Each course is paired with a Niagara wine. Silent and live auctions complete the event. This is our largest fundraising event and its success is due to the support of the community through sponsorship, auction donations and the purchase of tickets. Funds raise support of the development of the Museum and the care and preservation of our permanent collection. In previous years we've received donations such as: event tickets, gift baskets, floral arrangements, bottles of wine, specialty food items, and gift certificates for goods or services just to name a few.
