The gold that glittered … Many special agents volunteering for the Art Museum of Southeast Texas Go for the Gold fundraiser this year — complete with Goldfinger theme — did an outstanding job selling almost all of the 450 tickets available. Last Thursday evening, March 10, agents, guests and maybe even some spies descended upon the museum for the reverse drawing toward $10,000 in gold coins.

Golden eye … The Art Museum of Southeast Texas invites everyone to Go for the Gold on Thursday, March 10, for a chance to win $10,000 in gold or other fantastic prizes at its annual reverse drawing. Join them in the “Goldfinger” theme this year, as they encourage guests to channel their inner spy and dress in James Bond inspired garb (that seems to mean black to this columnist).
