Monday, October 22 – Evening Event – 4:30 p.m.-8:30 p.m.
Explore one of the desert’s newest attractions, Sunnylands Center & Gardens, with its welcoming Great Room, exhibitions, film, and interactive media stations. Learn about the Annenbergs and the famous people who visited them, Midcentury Modern architecture, art collecting, and the sustainability ethic driving this project. Wander through the new Gardens inspired by Impressionist paintings for an experience of arid-landscape plants different from traditional desert garden design. Then, take your “explorations” further by hopping on the motor coach to the Children’s Discovery Museum of the Desert! Reconnect with your inner child while discovering the best of hands-on, family learning. Explore the over 60 exhibits and enjoy decadent desserts and coffees. Find out why the Museum’s motto is: “Sometimes Fun is how things get done!” or “Learning is Serious Fun!”
Fee: $40 per person includes transportation, heavy appetizers, beverages, and dessert. Limited to 200 participants.
