Amazeum to host ‘UnGala’ fundraiser April 24


The event that puts the ‘fun’ in fundraiser is coming back to NWA this spring.

Scott Family Amazeum officials today announced plans to host their annual UnGala fundraising event on Saturday, April 24 this year.

The event is intended for adults 21 and older, and will include some in-person activities. Among them, this year is a new interactive installation called “Impulse” that includes 30-40 foot long light and sound-enabled seesaws that are activated through play. The installation was first presented as part of the Luminotherapie event in 2015 at the Place des Festivals in the Quartier des Spectacles in Montreal.

There’s also a 24-volt race corporate challenge, where teams race on children’s ride-on vehicles for the coveted Zing cup, along with a flame organ, and a phosphrescent wall at the museum.

“Our team puts a ton of effort into this event for the community,” says Sam Dean, Amazeum executive director. “We create one-of-a-kind experiences for the UnGala to make sure that our guests have an exceptional experience at our fundraiser. Our goal with UnGala is to tell our story to the community and give them a taste of the ‘every day amazing’ experiences we provide children and families.”

In addition, a virtual option will also be available this year to allow those who’d like to support the museum ways to do so at home.

The in-person event is set for 2-5 p.m. on the 24th, and the at-home version will take place from 7 -8 p.m.

Tickets to the event are $125, and include a take-and-make food truck buffet, and adult beverages. Proceeds from the event benefit the museum.
