Playdate 2014: Jet Set to Rio

Thank you to everyone who helped make Playdate 2014: Jet Set to Rio a smashing success.

Friday, May 2
6:30 p.m.

Jet set to the Bay Area Discovery Museum for one unforgettable night. Embark upon a vintage aviation experience and travel back to a 60’s themed arrival lounge where you will be welcomed by a captain and flight attendants. After getting your passports stamped, you will enter the Museum transformed into a Brazilian-themed Carnival complete with tropical foliage, a toucan, authentic samba dancers from Velocity Circus, and floats designed and created by the Museum’s young visitors. The festive night will continue with a live auction and raffle, delicious bites and drinks from Paula LeDuc Fine Catering, and dancing to DJ Mancub. 

All proceeds from this grown-up playdate support our mission to ignite and advance creative thinking for all children. If you are unable to attend, you can still support our mission by donating now.
