Ohr Fundraiser A Success

Fundraising for the new George Ohr Museum has reached the halfway mark. 16 million dollars is needed to build the state of the art museum on property next to Tullis Manor. A big source of support came at Monday night's gala at the Beau Rivage.

Museum Director Margie Gowdy says the casino has commited to hold the big party for the next three years, totalling more than 6-hundred thousand dollars in contributions. But Gowdy says they still need a lot of community help too.

Gowdy says news of the fundraising has reached across the globe, and she expects a lot of international financial support to build the museum.
