The Westchester Children’s Museum, slated to open next year at the Rye Playland Park, and Last Licks, the ice cream chain, are joining hands to raise funds for the future museum.
Here’s more from the organizers:
Last Licks and the Westchester Children’s Museum, soon to be Westchester’s premiere cultural and recreational destination, have teamed up to raise funds to build the Museum at Playland Park. All three Last Licks locations will feature “Explore S’More”, a special one-of-a-kind flavor in honor of the Museum’s mission to nurture curiosity, enhance knowledge and ignite imagination through creative hands-on exploration. 100% of the proceeds from the sale of Explore S’More – an orange-colored vanilla ice cream with marshmallows, fudge, and graham crackers – will benefit the Museum campaign.
When: Saturday, September 25, 10:00 A.M. – 10:00 P.M.
Sunday, September 26, 10:00 A.M. – 9:30 P.M.
Where: All Last Licks Locations
Armonk – 395 Main Street
Rye Brook – 104 South Ridge Street
Scarsdale – 1074 Wilmot Road
Last Licks has been a part of the Westchester community since 1997, and welcomed the opportunity to partner with the Westchester Children’s Museum to create a place that will enrich the lives of thousands of children in the region for generations to come. “The Museum will be a wonderful addition to our community and we wanted to be a part a project that will bring children and families together,” said Brian Levy, Last Licks Management. The WCM has already launched educational programs with community groups through its Museum Without Walls Program, but additional funds are critical to take the Museum into the last stage of development opening at the historical Bathhouse complex at Rye Playland.
About The Westchester Children’s Museum:
The Westchester Children’s Museum will be a vibrant, interactive cultural institution for children and their families, a dynamic resource for schools, a welcoming environment for special needs children, and a means to
build tourism in the County. Slated for soft openings in mid 2011, the Museum is currently under construction at the Rye Playland Bathhouses located on the Boardwalk of the Long Island Sound. The Westchester Children’s Museum is privately funded. Creation of the Westchester Children’s Museum will benefit the County in job creation, building tourism, reinvigoration of Playland, adaptive reuse of an historic structure, and most importantly, provide an educational, cultural and recreational resource for schools and families.
