On Saturday, April 14th, the Kaleidoscope Ball was held in downtown Winston-Salem at the Millennium Center. More than 300 guests gathered for an evening of fun, food, and entertainment by the Sleeping Booty band.
This was the debut of the Kaleidoscope Ball—the premiere of Kaleideum’s reimagined annual black-tie fundraiser. The new name exemplifies the inspirational kaleidoscope behind the Kaledium name.
Chaired by Heather and Mike Wilson, and Christine and Bain Storch, with Ragan and Dara Folan serving as the Honorary Chairs, the Kaleidoscope Ball raised more than $213,000 to support Kaleideum’s mission: “Inspiring wonder, curiosity, and lifelong learning in our children and community through interactive play and discovery.”
The title sponsor of the evening was BB&T, with many other corporate and individual sponsors supporting the event. “This inaugural Kaleidoscope Ball is Kaleideum’s largest fundraiser, and we were thrilled with the energy of the attendees and amazing work that the chairs and the committee did to create such a beautiful event,” declared Elizabeth Dampier, Executive Director. “In addition, we are very grateful to our generous community that embraces the role of Kaleideum as a place where learning can be reimagined.”
