The Anniston Museum Complex on Saturday will hold a fundraiser featuring food, drinks and a Pink Floyd tribute band. The event begins at 6 p.m.   

This year’s Sudsfest is the 12th such fundraiser for the museum complex, but the first to be held in the renovated Longleaf Botanical Garden’s event center, located in the former Lenlock Community Center behind the Berman Museum.

Alan Robinson, museum complex director, said by phone Monday that Saturday’s event will highlight the community’s talented restaurateurs, bakers and craft brewers, and will include beer tastings, a wine bar and a cocktail bar.  

“It is an opportunity to have an experience that you wouldn't normally get with a regular trip to the museum,” Robinson said.

In addition to the food and drinks, patrons will have the opportunity to see American Floyd, which performs the works of the well-known British rock band Pink Floyd, and accompanying light and laser show.  

Robinson said proceeds from the fundraiser will help pay to replace outdated computer systems for the complex’s museums’ ticketing and merchandising sales.  

Attendees to the fundraiser must be at least 21 years old. Tickets can be bought at the Anniston Museum of Natural History or by visiting the website www.eventbrite.com.
