Annual Fundraiser: Service
FR STD 2023_photo.png

Be a part of the development of KMHM! Please support the museum during this time to help us with our fundraising efforts! Proceeds go toward the everyday operations of the museum.


Kings Mountain Historical Museum is located in the heart of the historic City of Kings Mountain, North Carolina. We collect, preserve, and interpret original historical resources that help foster a deeper understanding of the unique history and cultural identity of Kings Mountain and the surrounding area.  Last year, over 2,000 local and out-of-town visitors benefited from the educational exhibits, programs, and services offered by the Museum at no cost to the public. As our visitation and museum collections continue to steadily increase, so do our funding needs. We would love for you to be a part of it!


Every September, Kings Mountain Historical Museum hosts a fundraiser to generate revenue necessary to support our programming. The Annual Reverse Raffle and Auction has been acclaimed the “best event of the year in Kings Mountain” and this 20th annual fundraiser will be held at the H. Lawrence Patrick Senior Center. We hope you will join us for this event, held on September 16, 2023. We anticipate a sold-out event with 300 tickets bought by individuals throughout the region, and we offer a Grand Prize of $10,000.


We only sell 300 tickets, so you have a 1 in 300 chance to win!!! Tickets include admission to the event and auction, heavy hors d'oeuvres, and drink tickets.

Unique auction items and great raffle prizes!

Tickets can be purchased at the museum or from board members after June 1st, Tuesday-Saturday from 10AM-4PM, or you can call the museum at 704-739-1019 and purchase right over the phone. Tickets can also be purchased online at the link below.

Each ticket is $125 (Entry for 2 People). It also includes a 1 in 300 chance of winning the $10,000 Raffle Prize, along with other raffle items!

Thank you all for your ticket purchases, sponsorships, in-kind donations and support for the Kings Mountain Historical Museum!!!
