SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. - A long supporter of culture and community, R&R Partners announced today that it will provide pro bono public relations support for The Bead Museum in Glendale.
The Bead Museum, an international treasure, is the only museum in the country that showcases beads and beaded artifacts from around the world and is dedicated to the preservation and research of beads.
Its collection, including spectacular anthropology and archeology exhibits dating back 30,000 years, rivals collections contained at the Smithsonian and Peabody museums.
“The Bead Museum needs the help of our community to survive and R&R Partners will raise awareness and build support to preserve this unique and important repository of world history,” said Matt Silverman, managing director of R&R Partners Arizona.
Kelly Norton, executive director of The Bead Museum said, “We’re thrilled to have such a prestigious public relations agency behind us. I am confident that with R&R’s help, we will introduce scores of new visitors to The Bead Museum.”
Glendale Mayor Elaine Scruggs and the museum’s board of directors will host a “no-frills” cocktail party May 28th from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. to raise $20,000 that will allow The Bead Museum to reach its $100,000 phase one sustainability goal. For $50 per person, the public is encouraged to come out and tour the museum, meet the Mayor and the museum’s founder, 94-year-old Gabrielle Liese. The museum is located at 5754 W. Glenn Drive, Glendale.
