The Museum, located at 325 Main Street in Downtown Chico, has been in the development stage for the past 3 years. Leslie says it is designed to provide hands on learning through play for children, as well as social development. there is no age limit, so Leslie says it's really a "Family Museum".

The Gala event will feature a gourmet dinner, dancing, a raffle and live auction ... set to the tone of 1960's rock n' roll with music provided by "Decades".   Max Minardi will also provide music. Classic 60's attire is encouraged.

Tickets are $135 per person, $250 per couple, and reserved tables for 8 go for $1,200, plus $300 worth of raffle tickets.  There will also be a no host bar.
