As with most children’s museums, admissions alone do not cover operating expenses.  We have come up with two unique and fun fundraisers for the community: one for children and families, and the other for adults!  In the Fall, we host our annual Night at the BOOseum, and in the Spring is our Play it Forward Casino Night and Auction for the adults.  While these are two very different events, they are both centered on the same cause – to help with the sustainability of the Bayou Country Children’s Museum!

Don’t miss out on the fun!

PLAY IT FORWARD CASINO NIGHT

This special evening (specifically for the adults) features professionally run gaming tables like craps, blackjack, poker and roulette with great hors d’oeuvres, cocktails, silent auction, exciting live auction and great live entertainment by Harley Talbot.  It’s truly not your typical fundraiser!!
