The Circle of Friends hosted their Annual Benefit on Saturday February 2, celebrating 40 years of Kidspace Children’s Museum. This year the “Boots and Bling” Benefit was held at the iconic Santa Anita Racetrack with more than 300 guests in attendance. Guests arrived dressed in their finest country attire ready to bid, dine, and dance the night away.



“We are celebrating Kidspace’s 40th anniversary and we knew we had to do something big!” said Claire Marco, Circle of Friends President. Proceeds of the Benefit support the museum’s Annual Fund and Kidspace for All access programs. In 2018, Kidspace served more than 380,000 guests with more than 90,000 accessing the museum through Kidspace for All access programs. The Circle of Friends Annual Benefit is just one of two amazing fundraising events they host each year in support of Kidspace.
