CMEE's mission is to enrich the lives of children and families as well as strengthen the East End community by promoting learning through play. The proceeds of this event support the museum's year-round community programming, and enable CMEE to partner with local social service agencies to address important issues such as childhood obesity, limited access to early childhood education, low literacy levels, domestic violence, and services for children with special needs.
"The Annual CMEE Family Fair is one of the most anticipated events of the summer for the CMEE Family," says Stephen Long
, CMEE's Executive Director. "It's an amazing day, filled with fun activities for kids of all ages. What's especially thrilling for me is to see so many children enjoying the museum, and to know that we are raising vital funds that allow us to offer the East End community important educational programs and a wonderful play environment all year long."
