To honor the life of Betty White, the Museum declared Sunday, January 16th, “Betty White Day” at the Museum. The day honors the veteran actress’s life and special connection to the Museum. Her beloved “Parakeet,” a 1977 Cadillac Seville, is part of the Museum’s collection.
On January 16th, the first 300 Museum visitors receive FREE admission courtesy of the car’s donor, Nick Ferrantino of Texas, and the Potomac Region of the Cadillac & LaSalle Club (the car’s Adopt-a-Car sponsor). At 11 a.m., guests can remember Betty’s timeless wit and charm, get an up-close look at “The Parakeet, and take advantage of a photo-op with the car.
Betty was a champion of animal welfare initiatives. The #BettyWhiteChallenge encourages everyone to support their local animal shelter in honor of Betty.
