Manassas Museum Associates Fundraiser
A popular American Girl doll from the pre-Civil War period is the new Museum Associates raffle prize. The 18-inch doll, named Marie-Grace, is a collector’s item dressed in clothing representing the 1850-55 period. She wears a frilly pink dress, and carries a lace parasol, a fan, necklace and straw hat. The raffle also includes a vanity complete with a bowl and pitcher, perfume bottle, an additional dress with extra shoes and hat, and a book about the American Girl character. The doll and accessories are valued at $300 and raffle tickets are being sold for $5 each or five for $20. Tickets are available at Echoes, the museum store, and will be sold until the drawing during the museum Holiday Open House on November 30. Proceeds will benefit the museum.
More About Manassas Museum
The Manassas Museum , established in 1974, commemorates the history of Old Town Manassas, particularly its role in the Civil War. 2011 is the sesquicentennial (150th) year of the War Between the States, and the Battle of First Manassas, a.k.a. Bull Run, clearly signifies the town's role in the fate of the nation.
