China Lake Museum 20th Annual Dinner Auction November 13

China Lake Museum 20th Annual Dinner Auction November 13The China Lake Museum – is having their 20th Annual Dinner Auction November 13, having missed last year because of Covid-19, and due to special requests to get back together and have some fun. Most importantly, the Dinner Auction raises funds to keep the Museum doors open and will help complete the new Phase 2 Building.

A unique auction item will be the half-scale prototype of the Rocket Sundial recently built and installed in front of the China Lake Museum by an Eagle Scout with the help of designer and fabricator “Skip” Gorman. Scott ONeil, another well-known community leader, is working on his specially engineered and carved wooden bowl which always brings in one of the biggest live auction bids.

Nice auction items are needed and appreciated as donations, as well as cash/check/credit card donations in lieu of attendance for the Covid-wary. The Museum Theme is “Honoring the Past — Building for the Future, Come One, Come All — Community Invited”

Companies small and large like to advertise their business, from being mentioned in the Program for $50 for a business card picture, all the way to $2500 for displaying a banner and purchasing a Table with complimentary wine as a generous gift to employees and/or other special people like first responders, medical workers, teachers, pastors/ministers and defenders of freedom.

Individuals or Couples can purchase Early Bird tickets for $35 per Person, $65 per Couple until 30 October at the China Lake Museum Gift Shop, 130 E. Las Flores Ave, Ridgecrest, 760-677-2866.
