Join us for flashy, classy fun as we celebrate a milestone anniversary and the POWER of PLAY!

Your evening will kick off with drinks, hors d’ oeuvres, and games galore with fun and fabulous prizes. Next, sit down to salad, a sumptuous steak dinner (vegetarian option available), and dessert while you enjoy The ICM’s program. The party wraps with the close of the live and silent auctions where you can sip one last cocktail as you collect the items you’ve won.

This is an evening both classy and casual. Our black-and-white theme (with pops of silver!) is perfect if you want to dress up in black tie attire or keep it comfortable in your favorite white tee and denim.

Your support helps us raise crucial funds for operations, improvements, and programs at The Iowa Children’s Museum, including ICM for Everyone, which provides our most vulnerable families with educational opportunities to learn and play together. It is only because of the generosity of people like YOU that we can continue inspiring children to imagine, create, discover and explore through the Power of Play.
