The National Multicultural Western Heritage Museum and Hall of Fame 10th Anniversary Gala will be held on Friday, January 21, 2011 at Casa Manana.

Founded in 2001, The National Multicultural Western Heritage Museum (NMWH Museum) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that operates through the generosity of gifts and grants from individuals, corporations and foundations located throughout the United States. Many elementary and middle schools with disadvantaged populations have been able to benefit from the important educational experience that museum has provided through seminars, workshops, classroom visits and field trips.

Funds raised from the annual gala support the museums programs and services throughout the year. The theme of the 2011 Gala is “Reaching our youth one at a time”; Honorary Hosts/Chair of the Event: Mr. & Mrs. Bill Lively, President/CEO of The North Texas Super Bowl Committee The gala will begin at 6:30 p.m. with cocktails, silent auction and benefit concert including Multi- Instrumentalist Taylor Pace, American Idol finalist George Huff, Nationally Known Headliner Cuba Gooding and The Main Ingredients, Unbelievable Impersonator Comedian Jay Lamont and many more. Tickets, tables, silent auction donations and sponsorship are welcome. Tickets are available through Ticketmaster www.ticketmaster.com.

The primary mission of the National Multicultural Western Heritage Museum is to offer the visitor a true and complete historical perspective of the people and activities that built the unique culture of the American West, in particular the contributions of Hispanic Americans, Native Americans, European Americans, and African Americans.

The work of artists who documented the people and events of the time through journals, photographs and other historical items are part of this new collection. These long overlooked materials tell, perhaps for the first time, the complete story.

The American West of today still operates on many of the principles and cultural relationships begun so long ago. We hope that our visitors will share in the enjoyment of a new vision and leave with awareness that today’s West came into being through the struggles and triumphs of diversity.

This Fort Worth Event celebrates the Western Heritage which contributed to Fort Worth being known as the City of Cowboys and Culture.  For more Things to Do in Fort Worth visit www.FortWorth.com/Visitors/Things-to-Do.
