Join Chicago Children’s Museum’s (CCM) Board of Directors on Saturday, November 3rd in celebration of the magic of childhood and thrill of discovery. The Make Believe Gala: Ta-Da! promises to be a night of enchantment, dinner, dancing, and philanthropic revelry as we raise critical funds for Chicago Children’s Museum.

An enchanted space dedicated to childhood in a world built for adults, Chicago Children’s Museum gives children a space where their only duty is to take leaps without looking, engage in uninhibited imaginative play, and find ineffable joy in small discoveries. Over 400,000 children and families visit the museum annually knowing their unique strengths, needs, and interests will be reflected in our innovative exhibits and educationally-charged programming. The dedication, enthusiasm, and continued investment of supporters like you is the magic that makes CCM’s commitment to ALL families possible.

The Make Believe Gala is black-tie, but we encourage guests to accessorize with their most enchanted talismans, top hats with hidden rabbits, wizard robes, doves that appear out of thin air, or a generous sprinkle of magic dust and glitter.

For sponsorship information or to learn more about the event please contact Rachel Carlsen, Fundraising Events Coordinator, at 312-464-7714 or .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

While children are at the heart of the museum, this event is not family-friendly.
