Kidzu Dream Gala Tickets Now Available!

As I sit here, I'm peeling black spray paint off my fingers from a mad 3-hour painting session this afternoon. I may or may not still be a little woozy from the spray paint fumes, but it's all for a good cause - the Kidzu Children's Museum in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.

I'm thrilled to say I'm on the planning committee for the Kidzu Dream Gala, coming up April 9 in Chapel Hill. The 2011 Dream Gala marks the first steps of the Kidzu Capital Campaign, an effort to raise money to build a new museum on the Wallace Deck in Chapel Hill. This new site will increase the size of the Kidzu facility substantially with approximately 15,000 square feet of indoor space, and an additional 5,000 to 7,000 square feet of space for outdoor exhibits and programs.

Tickets are now on sale via the gala website at and I can't wait for the awesome evening we have planned!

We've put together an exciting evening of  magic - think Alice in Wonderland meets Willy Wonka traveling to Candy Land...centerpieces made of discarded toys, a liquor bar stocked with mixed drinks reminiscent of your favorite candies, a to die for meal, unbelievable live auction "dream experiences"...wanna travel by jet for a day, practice with the Carolina Tarheels basketball team, have a photographer capture a year's worth of milestones, or maybe you have a special little person in your life who's been dreaming of a fairy tale play house??  All of these dreams and more can come true at this year's dream gala.

We also have a silent art auction planned, with some amazing pieces donated from local artists - and tons of surprises planned throughout the night! So, come dream with us atop the Wallace Plaza in Chapel Hill, the future home of Kidzu Children's Museum!

Make plans to join us on April 9th, and help make the dream our children’s reality! This is such an important time in the history of Kidzu and the Town, as we plan for an iconic museum that will educate and inspire generations of our community's children to learn through play.

Space is limited, so buy your tickets now!
