The Junior League of Greenwich hosted a private pajama party at the Bruce Museum for 50 Boys & Girls Club members between the ages of 6-10. Children from the Boys & Girls Club of Greenwich were invited to come in their pajamas for a private VIP night at the Bruce Museum to explore the current exhibitions, “Buried Treasures of the Silk Road,” and “Masterpieces from the Museum of Cartoon Art.”
“This is the fourth year the JLG has done this event, and it’s a favorite among our members and community partners,” said Elizabeth Peyton, President of the Junior League of Greenwich.
The kids enjoyed a docent-led scavenger hunt, where they searched the museum for exciting art and historical artifacts. Following the scavenger hunt, there was a make-your-own animation flipbook, a pizza party, and the showing of “Mulan” in the main room of the museum. The JLG puts on events such as this to expose the children to the wonders of the museum and engage them in new and exciting topics.
“Thank you for another great partnership with the Junior League and making it such a special night for our members,” said Don Palmer, the Vice President of Programs at the Boys & Girls Club of Greenwich.
The JLG would also like to thank the Bruce Museum Staff, especially Corinne Flax, the staff from the Boys & Girls Club, as well as the volunteers from the JLG’s Done In A Day committee. The night was another successful event because of everyone involved!
