The Beat Museum

Kerouac 90th Birthday Fundraiser
March 11 & 12, 2012

Jack Kerouac would have turned 90 this year. But even though Jack's life was tragically short-lived, his work left an impact on the world that has only increased with time. This year, the Beat Museum honors Jack's life and work with a 2-day event, featuring guest speakers, musical performances, and all things Kerouac and the Beats!

Thanks to the generous support of many local businesses, we're also offering an online auction throughout the event, where you can bid on restaurant gift certificates, hotel packages, event tickets, and much more. All proceeds benefit the Foundation for Creative Expression, a 501(c)3 non-profit, which is responsible for funding events at the Museum—guest speakers, author events, performances, etc. Your support is critical, and always most appreciated.

Auction goes live on March 12. Click below to see items available for bidding. We are adding items daily, so check back often!
