On Friday, June 5th, the JRA-designed Peoria PlayHouse children's museum held their "Our First Night at the Children's Museum" gala.

The event not only gave the local Peoria community a first look at the world-class facility, but also helped to raise funds to support the soon-to-open museum in its first year of operations.

Over 300 guests dressed in "ready to play" attire attended the party and enjoyed a wide assortment of appetizers, as well as a delicious buffet.  An open bar kept attendees quenched as they danced to a live DJ under a perfect summer evening.

The real draw of the night, however, was the chance to explore the recently-completed museum and try out all of the interactive exhibits.  Whether it was role-playing in the agricultural exhibit, sailing a model boat down the facility's whimsical water table, or pretending to be a movie star within the museum's dress-up area, a great time was had by all.

Attending the event from JRA were Mike Meyer, who served as JRA's lead designer on the project, as well as Vice President Shawn McCoy and his wife Kimberly.
