Hello friends,

It’s been a long, cold, lonely winter indeed! MAM promises to help wipe away the winter blues by hosting a be-in, complete with renowned Beatles Tribute Band “The CAST” of BEATLEMANIA and all the goodies that go with our traditional Annual Spring Fundraiser.

This year we have set the happenings on two evenings to ensure safe and smaller gatherings.  Come in your favorite 60s or hippie-inspired attire.  We’ll handle the love beads. It's gonna be a scene.

After a year of challenges, we hope you will Help! us through this Hard Day's Night and give yourself the gift of a really groovy evening out.

Your friends at MAM

Choose your night and It Won’t be Long before you can enjoy the music, great food, fun drinks all while helping us share the love of art!
