IGNITE THE NIGHT: NEW YORK STATE OF MIND
On February 12, 2022, MCM Partners invites grown-ups to take over the museum as Ignite the Night: New York State of Mind welcomes the museum’s biggest little kids to come take a bite out of the Big Apple in the heart of Jackson! Come dressed in your most Cosmopolitan of New York City style, enjoy entertainment by street performers and musicians and savor a variety of NYC’s finest culinary offerings. Be ready to bid on swanky silent auction items while strolling down Fifth Avenue, and be sure to peruse the beautiful art in our SoHo Artist’s Alley while you get a taste of New York City’s most exciting nightlife. After all, nothing beats a night out in NYC!
ABOUT IGNITE THE NIGHT
Every February, adults are given permission to play after hours at the Mississippi Children’s Museum (MCM) during its signature fundraising event, Ignite the Night. Each gallery comes to life with festive food, mesmerizing music, and amusing activities. Hosted by the Mississippi Children’s Museum Partners, a group of volunteers and donors who support the museum, this is not your typical party. It is imaginative, entertaining, and, most importantly, fun!
SUPPORTING OUR MISSION
By supporting Ignite the Night, you are helping the museum in its mission to create unparalleled experiences to inspire excellence and a lifelong joy of learning for all children. Proceeds from the event provide critical funding for the museum’s operations including for programs like Launch into Learning which provide afterschool care for students affected by learning loss during the pandemic.
