Museum Masquerade Benefit 2019
Join the Idaho Museum of Natural History for the 4th annual Museum Masquerade Benefit on March 30th at 5:30 pm at Phil Meador Toyota.
Funds raised will support student learning by creating an awesome Makerspace designed to engage students in hands-on learning through “MAKING”. This free-choice learning environment provides children authentic experiences in the fields of science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics (STEAM) and inspires a love of science and an appreciation for lifelong learning.
The theme is masquerade and masks encouraged. The evening entertainment will include music, dining, live and silent auction, games, and dancing. Music provided by DJ Adrian Smart, LP&H Entertainment. The Museum Masquerade Benefit has raised more than $40,000 in its first three years for exhibits.
Tickets for the event are $60 each and tables of 8 are available for $480. For more information call 208-282-3168.
