Adopt a Dummy
As part of our fundraising effort to build a new museum building, you can "adopt" one of the Vent Haven Museum residents! The adoption fee is $50 for one year and includes the following perks:
Recognition on the dummy's card acknowledging that you've adopted the dummy for a year (see photo as an example).
Acknowledgment and thanks on the Vent Haven Museum blog and Facebook page
The right to renew your adoption of the same dummy the following year.
As Vent Haven is a 501(c)3 organization, your contribution may be tax-deductible. Please consult your tax attorney as individual situations vary.
Knowledge that you've helped your dummy (and all of the other dummies in the collection, too!) have a state of the art home in our new Vent Haven Museum building.
This head was created by K.S. Gode and was donated by Gode in November 2018 in celebration of Gode's 80th birthday. If you'd like to adopt him, click below!
The following dummies are currently available for online adoption:
Gertie Glick & Wally Wagner
These dummies were used by Stephen Brubaker where every dummy turned into Stephen at the end of the act. Their masks are quite fitting for 2020!
Taka Chan was donated to Vent Haven in 2002 by ventriloquist Megumi Takahashi of Japan. Megumi used this puppet from 1981 to 2001. If you'd like to adopt Taka Chan, click below.
