Help us help the ones without a voice, the ones that can’t ask or seek for help on their own.

This year the AACA Museum will be helping no-kill shelters in the area such as The Helen O’Krause Foundation, Speranza Animal Rescue and The Nobody’s Cats Foundation. Shelters are run by volunteers and depend on donations to care for all of their animals in need of a safe environment.

How do I collect golden tickets? And what do I do with them?

LillyBring as many non-perishable items as you want and you will receive 2 golden tickets per item or per every dollar donation. Turn in your tickets at the collection table located in the main lobby/front doors. Your tickets must be in by 3:00pm. The winning ticket will be pulled after the fashion show, located in the lower level. You must be present to win. If we don’t hear from you  when we call your number, we’ll have to pick another winner. Anyone that brings non-perishable items is eligible to enter to win.
