CL Museum to hold dinner, auction May 18

The China Lake Museum Foundation–

    The China Lake Museum Foundation invites the community to its 22nd annual dinner and auction at the Kerr McGee Center on May 18th. The event will feature food and fun. Funds raised will support the museum’s day-to-day operations, helping us to continue preserving and sharing China Lake’s rich history and critical contributions to our country’s defense.

Attendees at this year’s event will enjoy a meal catered by Casey’s and bid on a wide variety of items and experiences via live and silent auction. Guests will also have a chance to try their luck with bucket raffles and the Wheel of Fortune.
