Spring Benefit 2017: Icing on the Cake

Friday, April 7, 2017

7 – 10 PM

Remember the sugar high from your sixth birthday party? The freedom you felt behind the wheel when you turned sixteen? Rekindle the nostalgia. Time travel with fellow partygoers and recapture youthful bliss at a birthday party 200 years in the making!

Icing on the Cake, the Museum’s 2017 Spring Benefit, kicks off our state’s bicentennial celebrations with an over-the-top evening of grown-up play hearkening back to the magic of childhood. The cake topper to this historical birthday occasion? In addition to being Mississippi’s 200th birthday, it’s the Museum’s tenth year in its state-of-the-art building!

Enjoy live music, a seated dinner, birthday fun, and cake galore! Proceeds fuel a robust schedule of outstanding educational programs and exhibitions throughout the year.
