Message from the Honorary Chair
I am honored to support the Peoria PlayHouse Children’s Museum by serving as honorary chair for Be Anything!
Be Anything! is a PlayHouse fundraiser, but it also supports children in learning about careers and becoming explorers and creators of the world, the PlayHouse mission. In past years children have had the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be a Stem Cell Scientist, Paleontologist, Baker, Basketball Coach. And, of course - near and dear to my heart - a Police Officer with the City of Washington Police Department!
The funds raised through Be Anything! help the PlayHouse continue to offer wonderful exhibits and programs for 75,000 visitors are year. Today’s PlayHouse visitors are tomorrow’s citizens, workforce, and innovators, and we are fortunate to have a space like the PlayHouse where they can grow their curiosity and creativity through play.
By supporting Be Anything, YOU are a part of this PlayHouse community that imagines and builds together. Thank you for helping our children become anything they want to be.
