Virtual Benefit

Supporting Our Communities

We are excited to share with you a fabulous new way to help support METC’s educational programs.  2020 Vision is METC’s first ever virtual benefit which will be held on November 5 at 7pm. Our goal was to keep our members and friends connected, keep them safe and hopefully raise some much-needed funds for the museum’s scholarship programs.  We think this online evening via a Zoom link will be the perfect way to include our museum family and highlight some of the excellent work we have done over the last few months, such as creating new online learning options for students and advancing our role as a community resource.

We have a wonderful evening planned, filled with entertainment, stories from our students, and messages about the vibrant education programs we provide for the community.  And we have partnered with two fabulous local businesses to create our “Party in a Box,” Healthy Italia and Gary’s Wine & Marketplace— because every benefit needs some great food and wine!  We also have a few surprise guests, but you’ll have to tune in on November 5 to see what is in store!

There are a number of options and different ways to participate in this year’s benefit.

  • Join us on a Zoom link, with or without refreshments (our “Party in a Box”)
  • Become a sponsor
  • Participate in our virtual giving auction
  • Make a donation
We look forward to having you join us on November 5!
