Last year, the city museum on Fayetteville Street went through a few changes. The Raleigh City Museum is now the City of Raleigh Museum, with a whole new ‘COR’ branding scheme. They are in the process of upgrading and this weekend, the folks behind the COR Museum are having a fundraiser, not just to help pay for future additions but to also celebrate the 20 year anniversary.
If you can make it, it sounds like a great event.
Date/Time: Sat., June 1 2013 from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.
220 Fayetteville Street
Raleigh, NC 27601
From the press release:
