If an evening constructing abstract art out of marshmallows or playing a giant game of Jenga sounds like fun to you, don’t miss this year’s 7th Annual “Full STEAM Ahead” Brain Builder Fundraiser, to be held on Friday, May 6 at 7 p.m. at the Antioch Golf Club.
The fundraiser supports the Busy Brains Children’s Museum in an effort to open Lake County’s first children’s museum, which is projected to open in spring 2017 in a 14,000 sq. ft. building in downtown Lake Villa.
The theme for this year’s fundraiser is STEAM–science, technology, engineering, art and math. In addition to a buffet, cash bar and sweet table, the evening will include fun, interactive STEAM-related activities, such as brain teasers, an acoustic demonstration, cement creations, an earthquake table, and more. Little Lake County will also be there bringing some of our playground fun! Adults can have a fun, playful night out while supporting the museum’s capital campaign.
“We need approximately $400,000 to open on time,” said Alison Price, executive director of the Busy Brains Children’s Museum.
The fundraiser will also include a silent auction, giveaways and a 50/50 raffle. Prizes include:
- four park hopper tickets to Disney World,
- American Girl merchandise
- sports memorabilia, football tickets
- wine tastings
- gift cards to restaurants, and more.
If you can’t attend the fundraiser but would still like to help support the museum, consider volunteering, sponsoring the event, or donating to the cause.
Busy Brains Children’s Museum is counting on Lake County families and businesses to help bring this long-awaited and much-needed, interactive resource to Lake County. “Share our information with colleagues and friends who might be interested in helping or contributing,” Price said. Tickets for the Brain Builder Fundraiser are $35 each, four for $125 and a table of 10 for $300. Purchase tickets for the 2016 Brain Builder Fundraiser here, or call 224-381-0138.
