Don't miss the Orpheum Children’s Science Museum’s 3rd Annual Gala Wine Tasting sponsored by The Corkscrew to be held at the Urbana Civic Center on September 29, 2011 from 5:30-8:30 p.m.
The warm autumn evening will make the perfect setting for sampling more than 100 offerings by some 20 vendors featuring select vineyards from around the world. Area food vendors will provide a light fare as David Howie returns to fill the air with the gentle strains of his acoustic guitar. Wine preorders will be available at the event, along with a fine selection of beers. A percentage of wine sales as well as all other proceeds directly benefit our community through funding programs at the Orpheum Children’s Science Museum. The more you buy, the more we benefit!
You’ll also enjoy bidding on hand-selected auction items that come from both wine vendors and many of your favorite local establishments. Unique and original items will be available for auction only at the gala including an event rental in the Orpheum Theatre and a Night at the Museum birthday package. More information is online at the Orpheum orpheumkids.com. Purchase your tickets at the door, in advance at the Museum, or online at http:/ocsmwine.eventbrite.com. Please note that you must be 21 years or older to enter.
When & Where
Orpheum Children's Science Museum
The Orpheum Children’s Science Museum is a regional, non-profit, children’s organization developed to inspire, engage, and educate children through exploration of science and the arts. As part of this, we are committed being an inclusive organization, reaching out to share our resources with those in the community who have the fewest opportunities. OCSM serves more than 25,000 visitors annually, encouraging learning and imagination through play and experimentation. Located in the heart of downtown Champaign, the 9400 square feet that comprise the Museum’ building are made up of hands-on, discovery-based exhibits that reveal fundamentals in mechanics, navigation, anatomy, hydrology, paleontology, and more as well as an historic theater, currently under renovation.
The Museum’s collection of more than 20 permanent exhibits, which appeal primarily to children ages 2-12, is dynamic and growing. Our theater is an historic community treasure that the Museum is rescuing. As a community based, volunteer organization, we rely on the active involvement of members, donors, foundations, and volunteers. The vitality of our organization is a testament to the strength of these community partnerships. OCSM serves local schools by providing field trips and exhibits that are aligned with Illinois State Science curriculum standards. Additionally, we provide camps, clubs, special events, after school, and weekend programs on a variety of topics .
