IT IS AN HONOR TO SUPPORT THE MUSEUM TO KEEP AVA'S MEMORY ALIVE. SHE IS A PERSON WHO NEVER LOST SIGHT OF WHO SHE WAS AND WHERE SHE CAME FROM.

I support the Museum; Ava Gardner was my late Father's favorite actress! Thanks to all who educate and preserve her legacy; I grew up in Illinois but North Carolina is my home now! A great tribute to a NC native!

I visited the Ava Gardner Museum 20+ years ago when it was just getting started. Of course I'm still a huge fan and check the museum's website often. It's wonderful how her museum has grown and improved over the years. Keep up the good work for
Ava - a fascinating, gorgeous lady!

My wife and I have followed the career of Ava Gardner for decades. We are now in our seventies and are spending this summer watching as many of her films as we can find. She is a woman of enduring grace and beauty. Thank you for all that you have done for her and all that you will continue to do.
