Creative Discovery Museum is going to the XTREME this year with AmuseUm, the party for grown-ups that benefits kids on Saturday, April 5. The party will begin at 7 p.m.

Organizers said, "It will be complete with bending twists and turns that will have you over the cliff into rippling rapids of extreme excitement and fun."

Organizers said, "XTREME AmuseUm will not only tease with its on the edge all-out indulgence, but guests will dive head first into an evening of spectacular food by Lee Towery Catering, experience daring entertainment with Priscilla and Little Rickee on the Rooftop and audacious dancing with the music from Sound Force."

“Supporters of AmuseUm truly are our courageous conquerors as they help us inspire all children to explore, innovate, create and play,” said Executive Director Henry Schulson. “AmuseUm will provide much needed support to enable us to reach out in our community and make it the best place for a child to grow up.”

  • Gold Medalists (VIP Guest)  -  $125 per person
