UPDATE: The Friends of the Maritime Museum has canceled the summer fundraiser, Friends Go Hollywood. For information, call 252-728-1638
BEAUFORT — A night of glitter and glamour awaits friends and fans of the North Carolina Maritime Museum.
The Friends of the Museum will host its annual summer fundraising gala on June 14 from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. at the museum, located at 315 Front St. in downtown Beaufort. This year’s theme is “Friends Go Hollywood,” right down to the red carpet. The theme takes its cue from the museum’s current Golden Pirates of the Silver Screen exhibit and Golden Pirates on the Silver Screen monthly movie series.
“Guests are encouraged to dress with the Hollywood theme in mind, whether it means posing as a favorite movie character or glamming it up for Oscar night,” Friends’ Director of Communications Gina Holland said.
A special guest emcee will hand out awards for best costumes; and Morehead City’s own Magician-Comedian Billy Collins will work the room, showcasing his astonishing tricks and lively commentary.
Food will be provided by TLC Catering, and thirst-quenching libations will be available.
Tickets for Friends Go Hollywood fundraiser are limited. The cost is $100 for Friends members and $125 for non-members. They may be purchased online at www.maritimefriends.org/events or by phone at 252-728-1638.
