The Scott Family Amazeum UnGala FUNdraiser presented by Nabholz Construction is unlike any fundraiser in Northwest Arkansas! (This year, and every year!) 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 the UnGala giving your inner child (21+) a night out to play makes someone else's day.
We are excited to welcome Ben Hasan, Walmart Senior Vice President and Chief Culture, Diversity and Inclusion Officer as UnGala Honorary Chair.
Each ticket purchased for this year’s unforgettably unique, two-part, grown-ups-only event supports access to Amazeum’s ongoing innovative arts and sciences education work in Northwest Arkansas and beyond.
First, come play at the museum!
The signature experience debuting at the UnGala this year is Impulse*, a playful installation of light and sound enhanced see-saws scaled to a surreal size. As if that's not enough, the museum and our one-acre outdoor Playscape will feature one-of-a-kind, distance-friendly experiences exclusive to our UnGala guests, along with our every day amazing exhibits.
Then, grab your UnGala at Home kit!
On your way out, pick up a take-and-make meal from our food truck friends, a bevy of beverages, and some surprise supplies for our online gathering in the evening.
Thank you for your support - we can’t wait to celebrate curiosity, creativity, and community with you.
*Impulse creation and execution: Lateral Office and CS Design. Production: Quartier des Spectadcles Partnership, Montreal, Canada
