We had an exciting day on Wednesday of last week hosting Bank of America, a new 2018 corporate sponsor for Conner Prairie. We are thrilled to have them as a partner, and look forward to building a strong partnership over the months to come. They got an inside look at Conner Prairie and an interactive experience with our talented interpretation staff.
I’m equally excited about our museum’s participation in Bank of America’s national Museums on Us® program. The program offers Bank of America, Merrill Lynch and US Trust credit or debit card holders free admission to Conner Prairie on the first full weekend of every month during 2018. The new partnership and support gives Conner Prairie a chance to draw new visitors – Bank of America customers from throughout the U.S. and around the world – for the entire year, which will help grow museum membership and overall attendance. Bank of America will also be teaming up with our young professionals group, the Horizon Council, to sponsor their two biggest events of the year – History on Tap and Holiday Cheers. (As a side note, we’ve got early-bird pricing for History on Tap through April 8, so be sure to get your tickets!) I want to thank Bank of America for this opportunity to help bring award-winning living history well beyond our local market.
