The American Center for Spine and Neurosurgery backs Busy Brains Children’s Museum Gallery

busybrains_logoBusy Brains Children’s Museum has been working on a major fundraising campaign since they had a site donated to them last year. This past May we had the pleasure of attending their Brain Builder event and catch up on the building progress.  We also learned that the Double Your Dollars campaign from April raised $7,100 that will be matched by the Rowe Family Foundation.  That however was not even the biggest announcement.

The BIG news is that the American Center for Spine and Neurosurgery {Libertyville} has signed on to a $75,000 gallery sponsorship of the Body Journey Gallery! This huge and wonderful gift will help propel Busy Brains forward to an estimated opening date of Fall 2016.  As inaugural sponsors, the center and its staff will be helping the exhibit committee develop the gallery that will teach children about their body and health through interactive and hands on exhibits.

This is past March the site also had a new roof installed by Local Roofing through donor support. The community support is what makes, and will make, the Busy Brains Children’s Museum experience so special for the Lake County community. Every time you visit you will be reminded that the parents of our community built this–it will be right there on the walls.

We are so excited for these developments and to continue to watch Busy Brains grow and the dream of a Lake County children’s museum come to life.
