Playing off Port Discovery's current Curious George exhibit, "Let's Get Curious" was the theme at this year's "Play It Forward," the annual fundraising party for the children's museum overseen by Dana DiCarlo, the event's perennial chair.
Play was the key word here --- for a group just a tad older than the museum's usual target audience. Several hundred adult guests put together banana bread kits, decorated yellow hats, made Curious George Shrinky Dink wine glass charms or sock monkey wine bottle cozies, as well as enjoyed cocktails and hors d'oeuvres before a seated dinner.
"It's a grown-up kids' party," said Bryn Parchman, Port Discovery president and CEO, as she and Dennis Rasmussen, board chair, greeted guests at the door.
