LET US ENTERTAIN YOU (LUEY)

Let Us Entertain You (LUEY)
This season we will enjoy our 12th year of Let Us Entertain You (LUEY) parties. The Museum Associates Council is sponsoring a series of privately hosted parties, each carefully and beautifully designed. With diverse themes and surprise guests of honor and celebrities, each event reflects the distinctive personality of its hosts. All funds raised from ticket sales go directly to support the museum. Invitations were mailed to all Palm Springs Art Museum members in mid-September. Due to limited space at these venues, a lottery system is used.
The Lottery has already taken place.
Although our lottery has already taken place, and some of our upcoming parties have sold out, there are still many wonderful parties which still have a spot available, just for you. Don't miss out! Contact the MAC Coordinator at 760-322-4816 or for a listing of open parties or to purchase a ticket.
