Fundraisers

The PlayHouse has two fundraisers each year: HopScotch and Be Anything!

Be Anything!

 

Be Anything is an innovative program that propels "Take Your Child to Work Day" to a new level. Help a child in your life explore the careers that excite them. Do they want to be an architect, veterinarian, fireman, meteorologist? Are they unsure, but excited to try new experiences?

Join us for:

  • Four career days at the Peoria PlayHouse Children's Museum, featuring professionals who will engage your children in a wide range of careers
  • An online auction featuring over 50 career-related experiences with local professionals, offered in their place of work, for you and your child. (The perfect birthday or Christmas gift!)
  • Cocktails & Careers, an October 3rd evening celebrating the PlayHouse and our belief - and yours - that every child can grow up to Be Anything.

To learn more about Be Anything, or purchase tickets to Cocktails & Careers, visit our event site.
