Philanthropy is In: Westchester Children’s Museum

Living in the suburbs of New York City with three young children, my husband and I have enjoyed familiarizing ourselves and being a part of the development of the Westchester Children’s Museum.  As active supporters of our community, we signed on two years ago as members of the Founding Family Society and I have enjoyed participating in some of the fun events supporting development of this soon-to-be fabulous museum.

As it isn’t every day that a new museum is created, if you are interested, I encourage you to take a peek inside how this museum is coming along!

There is a lovely video tour here: http://www.discoverwcm.org/visit.cfm?navid=9
The museum will have a gorgeous location right on picturesque Long Island Sound, in historic landmark buildings on the Boardwalk at Rye Playland, which evoke whimsy and set the stage for an exceptional children’s museum experience.  I am looking forward to the fresh air this location will provide for children and adults alike.  The space along the water provides nearly 40,000 square feet for the museum and a cafe.  The project is in development and I was given a private tour last year.  We are hoping that the museum will be complete by year end.

If you are interested in getting involved with the museum’s development or donating, check out the website!

Join us for two fantastic events at the site of the future museum (now under construction!)

The Spring Benefit on Thursday, May 20th on the Rye Playland Boardwalk and the 4th Annual Explore-a-thon 2010 on Sunday, June 13th from 9AM – 12PM. We hope to see you there!  Tickets will soon be available on the website!
