The Marin Museum of the American Indian needs your help. One way to help is by buying a pizza.
Hidden away in the North Marin community of Novato, California, this little-known museum is on the site of an actual Coast Miwok Indian village and is the only museum of its kind in the San Francisco Bay Area. It houses rare artifacts and its educational programs serve over 4,000 school children each year.
Founded in 1967, the museum today faces financial problems like many nonprofits. On Wednesday, April 20, 2011 the museum will hold a fundraiser at California Pizza Kitchen in Corte Madera. The address is 347 Corte Madera Town Center and the phone is 415.945.0401. All you have to do is print the poster that you can download at www.marinindian.com/cpkfundraiser.pdf and take it to the Corte Madera California Pizza Kitchen on April 20. If you present the poster, 20% of your purchases that day will go to the museum.
If you want to donate in other ways, visit the museum’s webpage www.marinindian.com/support.html to learn more.
On Saturday April 23, the Museum will celebrate Multicultural Day in conjunction with the Novato Multicultural Commission. The festival will be held from noon to 5pm at the museum’s location in Miwok Park at 2200 Novato Blvd, Novato CA, 94947.
