Creative Discovery Museum's AmuseUm 2014 Is April 5

Monday, March 24, 2014

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."

Guests of AmuseUm 2014 can further support the museum by participating in bidding at the silent and “roaming” live auctions for a wide range of items. An online auction will kick off on March 14 and will run through April 4 at www.cdmfun.org/auction.

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.”

Two reservation levels are available:

  • Gold Medalists (VIP Guest)  -  $125 per person
    • valet parking
    • access to the exclusive VIP Lounge featuring:
      • Special hors d’oeuvres, including a raw bar, and premium drinks

The Truth- From Weston’s Sister

Roy Exum: Oscar Brock’s True Passion

I don’t pay much attention to the Hamilton County School Board. Once the moon and the stars aligned behind Superintendent Rick Smith, you hear very little, if anything, from the nine-member council that oversees an annual budget of almost $400 million and employs 4,480 people. So chew this for a minute: approximately 2,000 of those people are not teachers. Yes, there are 78 principals ... (click for more)
