Out of an abundance of caution, The National WWII Museum has regrettably decided to cancel our 2020 Drafts for Crafts presented by IBERIABANK. We are sincerely grateful to our Young Benefactors and presenting sponsor IBERIABANK for their time and support of this event, as well as all of our event sponsors, donors, ticket holders, and vendors who were scheduled to participate in this spring-time fundraiser. We sincerely appreciate your understanding as we switch our primary fundraising efforts towards combatting the impacts felt on campus due to the coronavirus pandemic, and focus on the Museum’s educational mission through digital outreach programs. At this time, we ask all ticket holders to please consider your 2020 Drafts for Crafts ticket purchase as a 100% tax-deductible donation to support the Museum’s recovery efforts.

If you have further questions or concerns about your transaction, please contact Macy Barbier at . Again, we want to thank you for your dedication to this Museum and our mission, especially during these uncertain times. We’re all in this together!
