Evening of Play at Children’s Museum Tucson
October 3, 2015 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm UTC+0
While the kids are away, the grown-ups will play! The Children’s Museum Tucson will transform into an elegant but whimsical playground on Saturday, Oct. 3, 2015, at 6:30 pm for the 5th Annual Evening of Play, a night of fun, food and fundraising benefiting the Museum. Just for grown-ups, the evening is guaranteed to spark every inner child’s curiosity.
The museum is CLOSED all day on Oct. 3 in preparation for the event.
Museum Board member Michelle Marks and community volunteer Cindee Reynolds are this year’s event co-chairs and hope to raise $100,000 for the Museum. Jenine Dalrymple, the 2014 event co-chair, says “An Evening of Play offers a great opportunity for everyone to let out their inner child as they experience a flashback to childhood. Last year’s event was met with extraordinary community support and we look forward to another successful and memorable night at the Museum!”
