“Finally there is a fundraiser where you get to be a kid while you’re raising money to support creative programming for Kids. This second-annual event is an incredibly fun way for members of the community to support the Spark! mission of igniting creativity in children. The event acts first as a fundraiser and second as a way to raise awareness of how their programs are igniting the spark of creativity inherent in all children.
“Passport to Spark! presented by Gummer Capital Partners will be held on Saturday, November 5, from 7–10 p.m. at Spark! (1409 S. Lamar Street, Suite 004 Dallas) Guests will enjoy an incredible silent auction, live entertainment, themed food, hands-on activities and free play on the 6,000-foot Climb, Crawl, Slide Sculpture. The silent auction will feature unique items made by Spark! artists as well as quality travel items, sports packages, gift cards for lodging, dining, sporting event, cultural events and more.
“Spark! opened its doors in June 2015 and has already served 5,000 children, 53% of whom come from low-income households. Spark! instructors teach the creative process through a variety of unique activities such as pottery, animation, cartooning, music and more. They’re doing so because research shows that kids who identify as creative have better problem solving skills, higher test scores and an increase in self-esteem.
“Individual tickets for this travel-themed event are $50 and sponsorship packages start at $1,000. Current sponsors include Marsha Clark & Associates. Contact [email protected] for more information. Tickets available at www.sparkdallas.org/event/silent-auction.”
