Thank you for all who attended the 2017 Imagine That! Luncheon. In attendance were over 600 guests and we were supported by nearly 50 sponsors!  A shout out to all who graced the stage including our amazing tri-chair team of Rick &Pam Panowicz, Scott & Renae Bond, and Bret & Monica Wilhelm. And a special thank you to Brad Smith of Microsoft for serving as our featured speaker.

We are so grateful for the many donations to support the Museums Free and Reduced Programs, including many Leadership Circle members. Click here if you would like to join the Leadership Circle or make a donation as part of the Imagine That! Luncheon.

Below are two links to the HOCM videos that were shown at the Luncheon. The first shares the story of a kinship family served in one of our many Free and Reduced-fee Programs. The second highlights the many ways that tinkering, making, and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Math) education are infused throughout all that we do for young learners at Hands On.
