The Children’s museum of the East End (CMEE) hosted its 11th annual Family Fair Fundraiser, “Farmyard Fun” on Saturday, July 20 from 10:30am-1:30pm. With a focus on the region’s rich agricultural tradition, the Fair featured farm-themed crafts, performances, water slides, pony rides, bounce houses, music and food. With a crowd of over 700 children and families, it was CMEE’s biggest fundraiser of the year.
All proceeds enable the Children’s Museum to make a huge difference for underserved families in Eastern Long Island. In addition to serving more than 75,000 visitors at the Museum each year, CMEE partnered with Lord Island Head Start, Sepa Mujer, the Retreat, and dozens of other local social service organizations to address critical issues in the community such as literacy, early childhood education, and domestic violence.
