imas day of giving celebrates historical imas anniversary

On October 7, 1968, the Junior League Museum Board entered into a lease agreement with the City of McAllen for a 5,000 square foot building. Shortly after, a Board of Trustees was appointed and by-laws were adopted. The initial funding came from donations by local business firms, civic organizations, and individuals. An Executive Director was employed in June 1969, and building renovations were completed. The Museum was dedicated and formally opened to the public on October 26, 1969. 

In celebration of its community impact, the IMAS Day of Giving takes place on October 7, 2020. The online silent auction bidding will open on IMAS Day of Giving and close at 12:00 PM on Monday, October 26, 2020.
