17th Lumina Daze at Wrightsville Beach

We are currently seeking Live and Silent Auction items for the 2014 Lumina Daze!

Lumina Daze was another great success.  We had music in 3 areas of the Blockade Runner Resort, food and drink on the lawn, dancing everywhere, an elegant silent auction and exciting live auction.  We made lots of money for the museum, caught up with old friends and made plenty of new friends.  Click here to view photos of this wonderful event!  Many thanks to Ariel Keener, Photographer, REL Designs Photography and Salt Magazine.
