The Museum of South Texas History proudly announces Gail Cappadona and Kathleen Pebley will serve as co-chairmen for its 39th annual fundraising auction ¡FANDANGO! 2015 to be held at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, October 10. Inspired by MOSTHistory’s Save Our Jail Campaign, this year’s theme of Escape To Fun And Games merges with the world’s number one board game of MONOPOLY — as venerable as MOSTHistory’s 1910 Jail — to provide a thrilling evening of fast-paced auction fun as you “GO TO JAIL,” “GET OUT OF JAIL FREE” or are “IN JAIL JUST VISITING” while enjoying good food with great friends — all to provide for the museum’s preservation and education programs. Reserved Tables for ten persons are available now for $3,000 (Premium) and $1,500 (Standard). Individual tickets will go on sale in September for $150 per person. For more information, please call Development Officer Lynne Beeching at +1-956-383-6911. This October 10 take a “CHANCE” and “Roll the Dice” with MR. MONOPOLY at ¡FANDANGO! 2015 Escape To Fun And Games, together making MOSTHistory the big winner.

About Museum of South Texas History
The Museum of South Texas History is accredited by the American Alliance of Museums. It is located in downtown Edinburg at 200 North Closner Boulevard on the Hidalgo County Courthouse square. Hours of operation are from 1–5 p.m. Sunday and 10 a.m.–5 p.m. Tuesday–Saturday. Founded in 1967 as the Hidalgo County Historical Museum in the 1910 Hidalgo County Jail, the museum has grown over the decades through a series of expansions to occupy a full city block. In 2003 following the completion of a 22,500 square foot expansion, the museum was renamed the Museum of South Texas History to better reflect its regional scope. Today, the museum preserves and presents the borderland heritage of South Texas and Northeastern Mexico through its permanent collection and the Margaret H. McAllen Memorial Archives and exhibits spanning prehistory through the 20th century.
