An event organizers say provides the highest entertainment value of all the fundraisers they hold annually raised $7,000 for the Yarmouth County Museum and Archives.
The Titanic: All Decked Out mock casino was held Nov. 3 at the Yarmouth Golf and Country Club.
The atmosphere was designed to replicate the Titanic’s voyage, complete with live music and many guests in costume.
Coordinator Adrienne Beaudette says the funds will be directed towards general operating costs of the facility.
“For example - roof repairs to the museum, repainting of the archives, and bringing in travelling exhibits to Yarmouth such as the Sea Monsters exhibit from last winter,” she said.
A similar event with a different theme is planned for next year. “Old Hollywood” is one of the ideas being considered.
