2018 Benefit Ball Raised Over $500,000

Thank you for helping to make DuPage Children’s Museum’s 2018 Benefit Ball a tremendous success. Your support of this Museum is an investment in our future innovators and creative thinkers.

This year’s event emphasized the child-adult learning partnership that is at the core of the Museum’s mission. Nearly 400 Chicagoland philanthropists gathered at the Embassy Suites by Hilton in Naperville to support the Museum whose mission has established an important footprint in the early childhood arena across the country.
