BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — The Buena Vista Museum announced that a private donor has just offered to match donations to the museum up to $25,000.

"No donation is too small, it all adds up and helps us reach our goal of $50,000!" said Executive Director Koral Hancharick. "I thank you in Advance, for your help in reaching the full goal of this Matching Donation."

This news coming as the museum prepares to celebrate their 25 year anniversary.

All the funds donated bringing in more technology to help bring the museum alive and into the 21st century, the museum said.
