The Fairytale Ball, is our annual fundraiser, it supports our Learning Through Discovery programming including the Everybody Plays program that provides subsidized access to underserved families.

Since opening our doors in 2014 we have helped tens of thousands of children to develop critical thinking and self-directed learning. Special programing has included NASA selecting us to release images from the Webb Space Telescope and our first-ever Here Comes the Surf Day with Junior Lifeguards, TAMUG, UTMB, NOAA and M.D Anderson.

In 2024 we have even more planned! We hope you consider a gift of event sponsorship, an auction item or in-kind service donation for our major fundraising event. Click here to sponsor our event!
