Those five years as a board member were exciting and challenging as we developed temporary sites studying how children played and developed and tested exhibit concepts that would eventually be built in the museum's permanent home. Many of us spent hours developing fundraising events, asking for donations and talking about the museum to anyone that would listen, to help raise $5 million dollars and open our doors on May 1, 2015.
I am so proud of the museum and so excited that I had the opportunity to join the museum team as an employee in December 2015 as an Event Sales Manager. My goal is to help grow the fundraising events and private event business for the museum. The museum is such a unique venue that it needs little to no decorating for an event. The exhibits and artwork speak for itself and with a few tables and chairs, you have created your event space for a social or company function, company picnic, family reunion, groom's dinner, or small wedding reception. The indoor and outdoor spaces make it ideal whether its rain or shine.
In addition, there is a private meeting room that is available for groups up to 50 people and has state of the art A/V equipment and a kitchenette. This room can be rented for meetings, presentations, book clubs, painting parties, birthday parties, bridal showers, baby showers and more!
My position at the museum gives me the opportunity to promote a venue I love and help you have a successful event! It's the best of both worlds! Take a tour of the museum by contacting me at firstname.lastname@example.org
