“CMEE is thrilled to host its 7th Annual Family Fair benefit, which will wow, inspire and entertain families with a constellation of space-themed activities,” said Stephen Long, President of the Children’s Museum of the East End. “In addition to being a stellar event for kids, the Fair raises vital funding to support programs that serve the needs of families in the year-round community.
Children’s Museum of the East End (CMEE) is holding their annual Family Fair fundraiser, “To CMEE and Beyond!,” on Saturday, July 18th. From 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., museumgoers will enjoy out-of-this world arts and crafts, water slides, entertainment, games, music, food and more during the outer space themed event.
Honorary Co-Chairs for this year’s event include “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” actress Jane Krakowski, “Blue Bloods” star Bridget Moynahan, “Modern Family” actress Julie Bowen, “Royal Pains” actor Mark Feuerstein and Dana Klein, Kelly Klein and Nick Manifold, “Cougar Town” actress Christa Miller and Bill Lawrence, Florinka Pesenti and Dan Abrams.
The annual Family Fair is CMEE’s largest fundraiser of the year. Proceeds from the afternoon support the Museum’s educational outreach and programming for low-income families. “Among its many community partnerships, CMEE works with Long Island Head Start to provide preschool for low income families, collaborates with The Retreat to present programming for families affected by domestic violence, and provides afterschool workshops for Spanish-speaking children and their parents,” noted Long.
