Second Annual Snowball

Great article by Candace Jordan, Social Columnist at Chicago Tribune, covered Chicago Children's Museum's Second Annual Snowball, a dinner dance for children and their parents. Towards the bottom of the article mention is made of Michael's Museum. Michael Horvich, Curator was the in-kind sponsor for the "Make-A-Snow Person" activity.
