Sand in the City Gala participants had the first opportunity to visit the much anticipated new Hands on Children’s Museum in Olympia. This event marked the last major function for the organization before closing the old museum and moving to the new state of the art facility.
Community focused attendees bid on auction items, dined on savory food and grooved to the featured bands: LOTT Troubadors, The Torres, & The Beatniks! There were also two live animal appearances from Charlie the Alpaca and Zion the Llama. Sand in the City, as a whole, raised over $135,000 in proceeds to benefit the free & reduced programs at the Hands On Children’s Museum, making the museum accessible to as many children as possible in our community.
