America On Wheels Museum is making plans for a Tank-Full of Happenings in 2021-2022 as we fuel up for “Highway 14” in celebration of our 14th Birthday. Isn’t that GREAT. Our success will be due to those who share our vision of establishing America On Wheels as a nationally recognized cultural attraction devoted to showcasing outstanding and historical classic vehicles and educating our visitors about the impact the transportation industry has on our society and economy. Operating a museum remains a monumental undertaking and we remain grateful to all who are willing to lend their names and financial support to the museum. Our goal is to raise $70,000 from corporate and individual sponsorships. The proceeds raised from the attached opportunities will be used to enable us to continue to provide children and adults with an outstanding museum experience.

The Kid’s Garage has opened and full of hands-on fun for our Little Wheelers (ages 12 and under). Using a custom fabricated car based on a 1955 Chevy Belair, this educational exhibit will enable children ages 4-12 to get their hands “dirty” using life-like tools to change the oil, air filter or muffler. They will be able to restore a rusted body panel and use a computer to order parts, develop work orders and invoices. We are thrilled this exhibit will expose a new generation to some of the many aspects of the automotive industry. And we are totally revved up to welcome a new neighbor across the street   Museum visitors will have the opportunity to view skilled craftsmen work their magic on the vehicles that we all dream about owning.  Tours are every Wednesday & Friday at 1:00pm leaving from the Museum.

We encourage you to review the enclosed Sponsorship Form and select the option that best satisfies your views, budget and goals. By participating as a sponsor, you will benefit from additional exposure through our promotional efforts and media coverage. We believe museums are powerful community assets, benefiting it economically, culturally, educationally and offering a venue to learn about history. We have seen an increase in both schoolchildren visiting the museum for our programs during year-round field trips and adults who look to expand their knowledge through our changing exhibits, presentations and events. Our admissions, facility rentals and memberships continue to increase. Isn’t this wonderful?

We would be honored to have your support and trust in our museum. You are welcome to visit the Museum at any time for an update on our progress. Like most non-profits, our museum relies on the generosity of donors to help us achieve our goals. I’m writing to you today to ask for your consideration of the opportunities available as 2018 Museum Sponsor which will enable us to tell the timeless stories that helped shape our region and the world around us. Your contribution can help fuel our journey down Highway 10. Simply return the attached sponsor card to proceed. Feel free to contact me at director@americaonwheels.org or 610.432.4200 x 11. Thank you for your consideration to support the museum and the important role it plays in preserving America’s automotive heritage. Wishing you 12 months of success ~ 52 weeks of laughter ~ 365 days of fun ~ 8,760 hours of joy ~ 525,600 minutes of good luck and 31,536,000 seconds of happiness. Onwards!
