Live Auction with Jacques Raising HandA Night at the Museum Gala
The Bayou Teche Museum has made the difficult decision to forgo our annual fundraising gala traditionally held in January. With the imperative support of our steadfast sponsors, this year we will focus our efforts on a safer online auction and raffle. Our goal is to raise the funds necessary to not only cover our annual operating expenses and exhibit enhancements but also to continue the expansion into the adjacent Donald “Doc” Voorhies wing. We need your help now more than ever. We hope that you will find it in your hearts to continue your annual pledge and renew your membership at the same level as in previous years. Our success and expansion depend on your continued support. Membership Opportunities Form

Our fundraising auctions feature one-of-a-kind items and experiences you can only get through the Museum, from trips off the beaten path and behind the scenes to original art pieces and adventures. PLUS jewelry, sculpture, dinners, décor, art, fashion, theater tickets, gift cards and baskets and more. Normally held in January, other auctions may be held at other times. Follow us on Facebook for updates!
