Efforts continue to raise an estimated $68 million for the proposed National Hurricane Museum and Science Center.
Gray Stream, chairman of the museum’s board of directors, told the American Press that talks with large corporations have paid off, as the fundraising project has netted $14 million in commitments.
Stream views the task as a challenge and knows that the Gulf region is the target audience for financial donations.
Steam has visited Baton Rouge, New Orleans and Houston to speak to organizations and company executives about the museum. Plans are for the museum to be constructed near the Lake Charles Civic Center.
The group is also targeting federal agencies for financial support.
