HERITAGE OF AMERICAS MUSEUM HOSTS FIVE-CHOICES DREAM RAFFLE APRIL 27

 

 

April 12, 2013 (Rancho San Diego)—“The Museum’s Five-Choices Dream Raffle is always a hit at the Spring Garden Festival.  Because it’s our 20th anniversary, we really went all out this year,” says curator Kathleen Oatsvall at Heritage of the Americas Museum on the campus of Cuyamaca College.  So the Museum chose five fabulous prizes—one to honor each wing of its museum (natural history, archaeology, anthropology and art) plus the museum gift shop. 

Options include a massive amethyst cathedral crystal, pre-Columbian artifacts, a Hopi Kachina and other artifacts dating from after 1492, an oil painting titled “Medicine Horse” by Douglas Weaver, and a gift certificate to the Museum Store.
