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.

The Art Museum of Southeast Texas (AMSET) invites everyone to “Go for the Gold” on Thursday, March 5, for a chance to win $10,000 in gold or other prizes at its annual reverse drawing. The theme this year is “Rollin’ it Back” as AMSET increases the odds of winning by reducing the number of tickets sold from 500 to only 450.
