Assisting the Queen Mary Heritage Foundation

Long Beach Heritage is pleased to support the efforts to restore and preserve one of the icons of the City of Long Beach – the Queen Mary. A new non-profit, the Queen Mary Heritage Foundation, will soon be online to accept donations directly, but in the meantime, Long Beach Heritage is assisting in offering the ability for you to donate or to become a member of the Queen Mary’s new annual membership program. We hope you will consider helping with this worthy preservation project. To learn more about this project, please email Joseph Rodriquez-Jozwiak.
