What is it worth?
Find out this Wednesday, May 19th at the Champaign County Historical Museum’s spring fundraiser.
The fundraiser will be held on Wednesday between 6 and 9 p.m. in the museum at 809 East Lawn in Urbana.
The event, which is patterned after the PBS series “Antiques Roadshow,” is sponsored by Freshwater Farms of Ohio and the Historical Society. All proceeds benefit the museum’s operations.
The price of admission is $20 in advance, or $25 at the door. Admission includes one appraisal and a flight of wine & charcuterie plate served “bistro-style” by Freshwater Farms. The organizers hope that folks will socialize during the event and tour the museum rather than simply wait in line.
Four experienced appraisers will be set up throughout the museum. Two appraisers were introduced earlier this month.
Advance tickets may be purchased at the museum, at local banks – Peoples, Perpetual and Urbana’s Park National Bank. In addition to benefiting the museum and preserving its artifacts, this should be a fun event for people of all ages to enjoy and hopefully one that will build from year to year.
