On April 8, 2015 Muse Event Center and CRAVE Catering were host to Love Your Melon, a Minneapolis-based nonprofit that funds childhood cancer research initiatives, provides immediate support for children and their families and donates a hat to every child battling cancer in America. After Love Your Melon attended Muse Event Center at the It’s Just Lunch Date for Life event, they wanted bring their own inspiration into Muse for an afternoon of fun and fundraising! The event was a celebration of Love Your Melon’s new partnership with Pinky Swear Foundation and CureSearch for Children’s Cancer. Lover Your Melon made a goal of donating $1 million to these incredible organizations fighting childhood cancer.
Muse Event Center’s multi-level, open-concept floor plan was perfect for Love Your Melon’s vision of transforming the space into a kids’ retreat. The event was packed with superheroes, arcade games, inflatable bounce castles and obstacle course, food, drinks, and music! Children (and adults) of all sizes had a blast playing in the transformed ballroom.
CRAVE Catering created a custom kid-friendly menu for the event. A variety of flatbread pizzas, mini corn dogs, homemade tater tots, and a walking taco station reenergized guests to continue the fun. Additionally, CRAVE Catering offered a “Superhero Star” specialty drink and donated a portion of drink sales totaling $1,100.
The Pinky Swear Foundation will hold their annual fundraiser at Muse Event Center on April 11, 2015.
