Rock Your Choice Art Auction

Last Friday at the Eagle's Club in Rochester, the CMR took part in the Rock Your Choice Art Auction. The event included live dance, several musical groups, and a silent auction. We want to thank the organizers and volunteers who did such a great job decorating and creating a fun atmosphere.

We had a couple of small exhibits present for kids and handed out information about our upcoming fundraiser as well as some newsletters. The event was very well attended and proceeds not only went to CMR but to Paws & Claws and Season's Hospice as well. Thanks to all who donated their time, ticket, or talent!

Rochesterfest photos posted on website

We've finally got some photos on our website from our "CMR Under Construction" exhibit at Rochesterfest's Family Fun Night on June 24. Kids swarmed to it, as you can see from the photos :) Check out our photos of this fun event! www.childrensmuseumrochester.org/about/Rochesterfestphotos

Check out the 'Rock Your Choice Art Auction' on July 24

Please consider checking out the "Rock Your Choice Art Auction" from 5:30-9:30 p.m. on July 24 at the Eagles Club (917 15th Ave. SE).

The Children's Museum of Rochester is one of several non-profit beneficiaries of this event and will have a booth set up on-site. There is a $5 admission fee, which CMR supporters can earmark for the Children's Museum project. Auction-goers can enjoy live musical entertainment and bid on items like sculptures, paintings, jewelry, vases, and more.

It will be a fun event that benefits several worthy non-profit organizations in town. The first "Rock Your Choice" was last year in Byron, and 400 people attended :)
