Upcoming Creative Palm Springs Art Museum Fundraising Parties
Let Us Entertain You (LUEY) parties to raise funds for the museum's continuing programs and exhibitions
The Palm Springs Art Museum's creative and beautifully designed LUEY (Let Us Entertain You) parties will continue in 2014 and many of these events still have availability. LUEY parties are sponsored by the host or hostess of the event and all the proceeds raised from the event go directly to the museum. New this year, several LUEY parties will raise funds in support of the museum's various support councils.
With diverse themes and surprise guests of honor and celebrities, each event reflects the distinctive personality of its hosts. Although some of the upcoming parties have sold out, there are many wonderful parties that still have availability. These events are open to the public and are a great way to not only support the museum but do so in a fun and festive fashion. Locations for the various parties will be announced upon purchase of the tickets. To order tickets for any of the events listed below, contact the Museum Associates Council Coordinator at 760-322-4816 or email@example.com.
