Farm Fête – 2013 Gala

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! For a fabulous recap of the planning and presentation of the event visit Tricia Phelps’ blog entry on Growth by the Season.
