Loose Cannons fundraiser the 'best yet'
Loose Cannons V, an annual event organized by The Tredegar Society, was "the best yet" according to George Harmer, director of development. "In spite of poor weather we had more than 400 people attend the event, which raised more than $15,000 on behalf of the Museum and its programs."
The evening's activities began with a cannon firing, followed by live music by the E3 Band. Event sponsors included Dominion, The Monument Group, Williams Mullen, Alton Lane, BB&T, The Answer Brewpub, Mekong, The Olde Glory Coffee Company, and Capitol Securities.
Founded in 2011, The Tredegar Society is the junior board of The American Civil War Museum. With a mission to support the work of The American Civil War Museum, the group hosts events throughout the year that seek to bring Civil War history to a younger audience.
"We are extremely grateful to The Tredegar Society and our sponsors for their support of Loose Cannons and other Museum programs," Harmer says.
