Auction items include four Broadway tickets, Hog Wild BBQ catering worth $1,000, a professional sleep study, a unique Connecticut’s Beardsley Zoo experience, three hours with a professional organizer, and multiple tickets to sporting and family events around the area.

EverWonder Children’s Museum, a 501(c)(3) organization, was founded in January 2011 by a group of mothers who enjoyed taking their children to other childrens museums and who wanted to create a similar experience closer to home for everyone in the surrounding communities. to enjoy.

For the first years of its life, the museum existed as a mobile entity without a physical location. The board of directors and volunteers brought science and art programming to the community through the local library and various community events in an effort to fulfill their mission and create awareness of the organization.

In April 2013, EverWonder Children’s Museum opened a physical location called The EverWonder Experience. This small museum space was packed with exciting hands-on exhibits and activities. The EverWonder Experience served more than 6,000 visitors.

Two years later, in April 2015, EverWonder Children’s Museum reopened in its current location at 31 Pecks Lane. This new larger space enables staff and volunteers to provide additional exhibits and activities as well as dedicated space for birthday parties and field trips.

EverWonder Children’s Museum has been busy planning its annual fundraiser, returning to MaryGold’s later this month.
