The Great Lakes Children’s Museum’s 15th annual gala fundraiser, Farm Fête, was fabulous party! Great food, delightful venue, fine wine, enjoyable entertainment, and fun folks in attendance. It was also a very successful fundraiser for the Great Lakes Children’s Museum.
We raised over $35,000 for programs and operation at the Museum. The +PLUS appeal brought in $2,500 matching gifts from former members of the Board of Trustees before the event. The night of the event, we surpassed the match, raising another $4,500. That means we raised $7,000 that is specifically earmarked to offer free admissions to disadvantaged children and families in our community. We want every child to be able to experience the vibrant hands-on learning that is offered at the Great Lakes Children’s Museum. Kudos to everyone involved!
