The Pea River Museum is the recipient of a $2500 check, thanks to the Midnight Margaritas Halloween Extravaganza Event held last month in downtown Enterprise.
The check was presented to Valerie Cates, director of Pea River Museum, by Deana Pierce, owner of Lunation.
Last year, event organizers presented a check for $500. This year, that amount tripled, due to the increased popularity of the event. Money donated came from the event’s ticket sales will be used to purchase moveable walls to upgrade exhibits and to help with other projects to enhance the Museum’s ability to share Enterprise’s history with the public. The Pea River Museum relies on entrance fees, gift shop purchases and donations to stay open.
Organizers say planning for the 3rd annual Midnight Margaritas Halloween Extravaganza is already in the works and they hope to continue the tradition and increase the contribution to the Pea River Museum each year.
