In lieu of the 2020 Grand Soirée, Lincoln
Heritage Museum at Lincoln College will host the Week of
Celebration, a virtual fundraiser celebrating the life and stories
of Abraham Lincoln and the Lincoln Heritage Museum September 21-25.
Due to ongoing concerns regarding the COVID-19
pandemic, Lincoln Heritage Museum made the difficult decision to
cancel the 2020 Grand Soirée. Due to the cancelation LHM stands to
lose $80,000+ in important funding. Lincoln Heritage Museum funding
supports the acquisition or preservation of important artifacts,
creation of new exhibits, educational outreach and the development
of free community programming.
“The Week of Celebration is totally different than anything Lincoln
Heritage Museum has done before,” said Olivia Partlow, Interim
Director of Lincoln Heritage Museum. “Working with the local
community to create virtual content has been so rewarding. I’m very
excited to have the opportunity to highlight all the good that LHM
does for the Logan County community.”
Viewers can expect to see exciting content about Abraham Lincoln,
raffle drawings and prizes, and hear from community members,
students, and volunteers about Lincoln Heritage Museum’s impact on
the community during the Week of Celebration.
During the Week of Celebration, the community has the chance to
enter to win the Puzzle Piece Raffle $250 cash prize! LHM volunteers
have put together a 250 piece Abraham Lincoln puzzle. Each puzzle
piece is for sale for $10. One puzzle piece will be drawn at random
on Friday, September 25. The winner will then be notified and posted
on LHM social media.
