Imagine Nation plans gala event Sept. 20

The ImagineNationMuseum is celebrating its 10th Anniversary this year. The museum has served the Bristol community and the state of Connecticut as a catalyst for hands-on learning and discovery for over 500,000 children and families.

In celebration of its “Decade of Imagine Nation,” the museum will host a gala on Saturday, Sept. 20. Festivities will begin at the museum located at One Pleasant Street in Bristol at 6 p.m. and will include lively entertainment, an array of food and desserts, a special “signature” cocktail, a silent auction, with a spirited live auction that will include a variety of unique offerings, as well as music and dancing with the Blue Cherry Band. Nicole Nalepa from WFSB Channel 3 will serve as celebrity emcee for the evening.

All proceeds from the gala will be used to support valuable play and exceptional learning experiences for children. “The museum is a division of the Boys & Girls Club and Family Center of Bristol and is committed to enriching the lives of children and families with unique educational hands-on exhibits and programs,” said a press release from the Imagine Nation.
