Amuse’um 2011: Imaginopoly – Imagine It! The Children’s Museum of Atlanta’s eighth annual fundraising event – will take place at the Museum on Saturday, February 26, 2011 at 7:00 PM.

At Amuse’um 2011: Imaginopoly, guests dressed in “playground chic” attire will jump inside a board game as they are sent to and bailed out of a VIP jail, try their luck at chance raffles, play casino games, savor theme-inspired fare by Soiree Catering and Events, and dance the night away on a game board dance floor to live music by Yacht Rock Revue! Silent and live auctions will provide excitement that lasts late into the evening while supporting the Museum’s mission. All proceeds from the evening support the non-profit Museum’s educational programming and outreach.

Dedicated Museum friends, Molly and John Jamieson will serve as Amuse’um Co-Chairs. John Jamieson is a Museum Board Member and Senior Vice President of Retail Operations for Georgia Natural Gas. Shayla Keough Rumely will be honored for her community leadership in education and the arts in Atlanta.
