It's a fund raiser for the local history museum. Every Christmas season they fill the place up with spectacular Christmas decorations, Christmas trees that have been incredibly decorated, and large glass cases filled with either a big Christmas village or gingerbread houses. Many of the trees and gingerbread houses have business sponsors. The businesses make a donation to the museum, and volunteers or staff do the decorating and post a sign giving credit to the business. The museum also raffles off donated items. In my case, I'm simply loaning the museum the Gingerbread House In A Bottle to add to the Gingerbread House exhibit and help bring people in, and I'll get it back after the holidays are over. I've also donated a Ship In A Bottle Christmas ornament to be raffled off. The exhibit doesn't officially open until Saturday evening (Nov. 21) to people who have paid for an "elite preview", but there's already been quite a favorable response to my bottled contribution by word of mouth. I've already gotten a paid speaking engagement out of it and sold six Christmas ornaments, and the show hasn't even opened to the public yet.
