When is the last time you had a 1-in-300 chance of taking home $10,000? Never? It’s time to change that. You’ll have the chance to take home some big bucks and have fun in the process at the Kings Mountain Historical Museum Annual Fundraiser. This fundraiser is officially called the 14th Annual Reverse Raffle and Auctions, and it is going to be a blast. That’s especially true if you take home the big prize.
Kings Mountain Historical Museum Fundraiser
This year’s fundraiser will take place at the Patrick Senior Center on September 9. Tickets cost $125 and include a chance to win $10,000 and dinner for two. Plus, the evening will have auctions and additional raffle prizes.
That’s all a lot of fun, but the fundraiser really hits a home run with the theme. The fundraiser’s theme is the Roaring Twenties, and guests are encouraged to dress the part.
That’s great news to attendees since the style in the Roaring Twenties was all about being comfortable. Women ditched the corsets and tight dresses for comfortable dresses, and the men’s pants got wider and more comfortable. It’s no wonder they decided to go with comfort. That makes it easier to dance.
If you need some style ideas for your Roaring Twenties outfit, stop by the Kings Mountain Historical Museum. The museum came up with the theme as a tribute to the current exhibit, “Great Gatsby: Cleveland County in the Roaring Twenties.” You can come up with the perfect look by visiting the exhibit before the fundraiser.
Let’s take a closer look at the exhibit.
The Great Gatsby Exhibit
The Roaring Twenties was a dramatic time for the people of Cleveland County. The Shelby Dynasty came to life, the textile mills thrived, and public systems were better than ever before. At the same time, labor rights and racial equality were still a pipe dream, and it wasn’t uncommon for violent disputes to break out. The “Great Gatsby: Cleveland County in the Roaring Twenties” exhibit captures all of that, along with the music, slang, and clothing of the time. You will feel as if you are a part of the era when you go through this exhibit.
The Roaring Twenties was an exciting time, but it wasn’t very advanced, especially when it came to vehicles. The automobile industry had just made it to the mainstream in the 1920s, so people were tooling around in vehicles that didn’t have a lot of power. Also, extra features weren’t even a possibility yet. Now, you can get the latest technology and ample power in a vehicle, especially if you shop at Renaldo Honda in Shelby, North Carolina. Browse through the vehicles and get something that has the modern era written all over it.
