On Saturday, February 2, supporters of Kidspace Museum moseyed over to Santa Anita Park for a rootin’ tootin’ evening of Boots and Bling.

Guests had a Grand ‘Ole Evening, celebrating the iconic people, places, and traditions of Country Music and Tennessee. They got dressed in their finest country costumes for an evening of fun. It was an evening to remember, including a silent auction during cocktail hour, followed by dinner, amazing raffles, a live auction, and dancing ’til the cows came home.

Supporters raised funds for Kidspace’s annual fund and Kidspace for All access programs. In 2018, more than 85,000 children and their families will visit Kidspace because of the Kidspace for All access programs.
