We are able to open our doors to the public free of charge because of proceeds raised from our events. The SAMA museums offer luncheons with guest speakers, art classes, community events and award-winning student education programs. We cannot do it without the support of our communities. Thank you for supporting the museum in YOUR community.
All fundraisers include delicious cuisine, drinks, silent auction, games of chance, and live music!
