“We certainly give thanks for everyone who contributed to the success of this sold-out event!” said Rhonda Kiest, President and CEO of Stepping Stones Museum for Children. “Kudos once again to Event Chair Kristine Granetz and her team for transforming our museum’s Spectacular Spaces into a glorious harvest setting that brought friends together for this crucial program.”
All proceeds will support Stepping Stone’s commitment to ensuring this important educational resource is accessible to every child, family and school regardless of financial, language or special needs barriers. Offering monthly free admission evenings, parent workshops, free traveling exhibits for schools and more, Open Arms reaches more than 45,000 children, caregivers and teachers at an annual cost to the museum of nearly $750,000.
