An Evening of Inspiration & Celebration
Be part of DuPage Children’s Museum’s AWE Inspiring Moments Benefit Ball.

As adults, we hold the responsibility to help a child’s world grow… to show them their potential… so that they, too, see those gifts in themselves.
Imagine a place where there is no limitation to what is possible.
Let children imagine…
Help them explore…
Keep them searching for “AWE”.
For over 30 years, DCM has created AWE experiences in our Museum and in learning environments beyond our walls.

Come celebrate with us and experience the wonder of AWE!
