the Law Offices of James Scott Farrin was among the sponsors of the second annual “Full House” Casino Night Gala to benefit the North Carolina Museum of History. The event, held at the museum on April 10th, was designed to raise funds for the museum’s statewide exhibits and educational programs.
“This type of donation will allow us to expand our exhibits, teaching more people about the exciting history of North Carolina,” says Marion B. Dees, membership and development, North Carolina Museum of History Associates. “We are thrilled that James Scott Farrin has agreed to sponsor this Young Associates event.”
In addition to raising funds for important museum initiatives, the event also served as a welcoming party of The Robson House (circa 1742), the state’s fourth-oldest known dwelling. The entire house was recently relocated to the museum’s first floor gallery as an integral component of The Story of North Carolina, the state’s first and only chronological history exhibit.
The second annual “Full House” Casino Night was organized by the North Carolina Museum of History Young Associates, a subgroup of the N.C. Museum of History Associates, a group which seeks to raise awareness and provide funding for exhibits, artifact purchases, and educational programs throughout the state.
J. Hunter Eddins Gentel, a Workers’ Compensation attorney at the Law Offices of James Scott Farrin is a member of the North Carolina Museum of History Young Associates and attended the event. Gentel joined the North Carolina Museum of History Young Associates because she believes in supporting the community and supports their mission.
“The North Carolina Museum of History provides a valuable free service to the community,” she said. “With the help of groups like the NC Museum of History Young Associates, this important resource will be available to North Carolinians for generations to come.”
