The Art Museum of Southeast Texas (AMSET) announced Feb. 19 that it will host its annual Go for the Gold party and reverse drawing fundraiser on Thursday, March 12, at 6:30 p.m. at the museum.

Tickets for the event cost $100 for members or $120 for non-members and admit two people into the party. The additional $20 for non-members buys them an introductory promotional membership.

A number of prizes are given away throughout the evening, including a chance to win $10,000 in gold coins for the first place prize, $1,500 in gold coins for second place prize and $1,000 in gold coins for third place prize. Winners need not be present to win. The gold prizes are given in American Eagle coins and have value that depends on the price of gold and value on the collectors’ market.

One ticket includes dinner for two catered by Two Magnolias and an open bar serving a signature drink.

All proceeds benefit AMSET’s exhibitions and educational programs.

Chaired by Roxanne and Eric Hellberg, this year’s Go for the Gold theme is “Walk Like an Egyptian.” Attendees are encouraged to come dressed in the fashion of ancient Egypt. Participants will also be entertained by the Hellbergs, who will emcee the event.

Only 450 tickets will be sold to maximize participants’ chance of winning; advance purchase is recommended. Tickets must be presented at the event to gain admission. To purchase tickets, visit amset.org or call (409) 832-3432.
