Museum Auction and Dinner set for Oct. 1

THE Maturango Museum – Tickets are now available for the Maturango Museum 2022 Annual Auction and Dinner. The event will be held Saturday, October 1 at the Kerr-McGee Center. Doors will open at 5:00 p.m.

   Even with our many and valued volunteer hours this year and the generous donations from people and businesses like yourselves during these last three years from the earthquakes to COVID-19, there are still many sources of income that have not fully recovered. Income from memberships and the gift shop cover approximately half of our operating budget. Various supporting programs are still not available or are in a slower recovery. The most significant being our inability to conduct Petroglyph Tours. There is no prediction when these might resume as this is a Navy allowance.

   All proceeds go to operational expenses that allow this special community organization to continue protecting, supporting and sharing our regional heritage.

   Tickets are $60 per person, and $100 for 2 people. They are available in the museum gift shop or online at

Sponsorship Opportunities are available.  For example, the $600 Mountain Lion level

Includes 4 dinner tickets, 50 raffle tickets, reserved seating, ¼ page ad in the event program and mentioned in all of our event advertising.  Other levels range from $100 to $1200.

   If you have any questions about becoming a sponsor or attending the 2022 Annual Auction and Dinner please contact Debbie Benson or Julie Stephens at 760-375-6900 or email   The museum is open 10am – 5pm daily.
