Fayetteville Starts Mission To Raise Money For Military Museum

Posted May 22, 2001

— TheAirborne and Special Operations Museumis hoping to complete a special mission.

They started a massive fund-raising campaign on Tuesday to raise $425,000. The $22 million museum is surpassing expectations for attendance. However, they still need money to help pay off construction costs. Through raffles, visits to local businesses and kettle pots, they hope to win the battle.

"There are great things happening in Fayetteville and this is representation of this. It belongs to us and we can all show our support," says Tony Chavonne of the Friends of the Airborne and Special Operations Museum organization.

The fund raising will continue through June 30. If you would like to make a donation, you can send it to:
