Make a Beeline to Discovery Gateway’s Bumble Bee Bash


Children’s museum celebrates 10 years at its Gateway Center location with a fundraising event to benefit low-income and at risk families.

Discovery Gateway Children’s Museum recently announced its 6th Annual Bumble Bee Bash, scheduled for Saturday, October 8 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. The Museum is celebrating its 10th anniversary at its Gateway Center location in downtown Salt Lake City. The Bumble Bee Bash theme, Imagine What You Can Beecome, encourages children of all ages to dream big about their future. “Please join us for this memorable family event so we can continue to deliver the museum’s educational experiences to our community for the next decade,” said Executive Director Laurie Hopkins.

The evening will be filled with hors d’oeuvres, desserts, drinks, and play in the museum to help us raise funds for sponsored admissions. Guests will have the opportunity to bid on silent auction experiences that promise to make dreams come true for a day such as beecome a zookeeper, a ballerina, or an astronaut! Guests may also participate in opportunity drawings to win gift certificates to local businesses and events. Tickets to the 6th Annual Bumble Bee Bash are available at and are $35 for adults, $20 for children, and a family pass for up to six people is $100.

Discovery Gateway is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to educating and inspiring children to imagine what they can beecome. All proceeds from the Bash support Discovery Gateway’s sponsored admissions program that has served more than 250,000 children and families in Utah over the last 10 years. Celebration of Discovery Gateway’s 10-year anniversary at its Gateway Center location will take place all year with special programming and exhibits, a $10 giving campaign, as well as a $10 off membership sale on October 10. Discovery Gateway’s 6th Annual Bumble Bee Bash is generously sponsored by Ernst & Young and Mountain West Small Business Finance.
