SPRINGFIELD, IL-(Effingham Radio)- Managers at Abraham Lincoln’s foundation are looking to borrow a page from vacationers and brides-to-be.
The Lincoln foundation last week launched a GoFundMe page to raise money.
The foundation says it needs to come up with almost ten-million-dollars to pay off a loan it took years ago to buy one of Abraham Lincoln’s top hats.
The foundation last week also announced plans to sell a dress from Marilyn Monroe to raise some of the money.
Foundation managers say they hope to avoid having to sell any Lincoln-related items.
