Unmasking Funds for Children

The DuPage Children’s Museum just unmasked their latest project.

The organization held a “thank-you” reception for the artists, sponsors, and “mask hunters” who have helped get the Math, Art, and Science for Kids, or M.A.S.K. Project, off its feet.

The yearlong program, whose goal is to promote and support early learning for all children, is part of the museum’s 25th anniversary celebration.

As part of the project, celebrities including actress Halle Berry, the Blackhawk’s Patrick Kane and Patrick Sharp, and music legend Bernadette Peters have signed 100 bisque masks that are now being auctioned off to the public.

Guests at the reception were able to preview the artwork and masks.

Ty Fahner, Honorary Benefit Ball Chairman, spoke to the importance of this project, “It’s very significant, not only as a fundraising tool, but an event in terms of learning. The support of early childhood education is extraordinary and the more people as a result of this wonderful event will know about this, will make it easier to extend the mission of this institution.”

The DuPage Children’s Museum is accepting bids through April 13th. For more information, visit their website at dupagechildrensmuseum.org
