UnGala FUNdraiser
UnGala FUNdraiser
7 to 10 pm

The Scott Family Amazeum UnGala FUNdraiser is unlike any fundraiser in Northwest Arkansas (or anywhere else for that matter). You won't need to dry clean that tuxedo or gown, or polish up those uncomfortable shoes. It's not that kind of gala. At UnGala, it's time to give your inner child a night out to play to make some kids' day. 

UnGala features NWA's only 24-volt race corporate challenge sponsored by The McLarty Daniel Automotive Group. Corporate teams race for the prestigious Zing Cup in specially prepared children's ride-on vehicles. Post-race, guests at the UnGala get to try their hand at racing the vehicles.

Last year, we brought a 25-ton Life Size Mousetrap to educate and entertain guests. This year we're bringing a (you won't believe this folks) 26-foot long, hydraulic-activated, human-controlled hand and forearm sculpture, created by artist Christian Ristow, capable of crushing, well, nearly anything. So make sure to observe the no parking zones. 

As that's not enough, the entire museum will be filled with one-of-a-kind experiences for this night only along with our every day amazing experiences. Tickets $100. Proceeds support Amazeum diversity and inclusion initiatives. 

Make It Yourself

Family workshop for children 3-6 years old and one adult caregiver. We recommend no more than 3 children per adult.*
