Many local businesses
and corporations have assisted us over the years in helping educate the public
about the history and sacrifices made by the men and women of our Armed Forces.
They do this through the sponsorship of special events and/or exhibitions. All
business and corporate sponsors are recognized in local media coverage leading
up to and covering such events, in on-site advertisements during the events, in
the KIDD's Compass museum newsletter which is distributed to our membership
throughout the nation, and on our website.
Some of the past events, fundraisers, and
traveling exhibits that have been held at the USS KIDD Veterans Memorial
include the following:
Special 2-wk. NASA
Port visits by the tall
Port visit by Sir
Francis Drake's GOLDEN HINDE
The Vietnam Moving Wall
Port visits by Columbus'
M*A*S*H* Bash blood
KIDD For Kids fundraiser
Pirates On The Levee
fundraiser for the Endowment
Port visit by HMS BOUNTY
Become a First Free
First Free Sunday is a
partnership program among several downtown Baton Rouge museums that gives
families an opportunity to visit local museums free of charge. Along with free,
self-guided tours of both the ship and museum, there will be arts & crafts,
aquatic animals, a movie, and more throughout the day. The USS KIDD Veterans
Museum opens its doors to the community free of charge every first Sunday from
10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. "Themed ” activities take place from noon until
4:00 p.m. in the museum lobby.
First Free Sundays are
made possible by corporate and foundation sponsors. Underwriters are recognized
in marketing and publicity material and on signage throughout the museum.
Underwriters are also welcome to host an information table providing
information logo items.
$1,500 per quarter ($500 each Sunday covers staffing, craft supplies)
