Dear Creativity Museum friends,

Saturday Night's Annual Carousel Lighting Event was a resounding success, with more than 440 visitors enjoying music & dance performances, Winter Wonderland activities, and free rides on our Looff Carousel. Delicious treats were provided by Insomnia Cookies and Fresca Garden/Sorrento Catering, making for a memorable inauguration of the holiday season.

Antique carousels like ours are rare and support for their operations comes from our carousel community. Bridget Freeman operated our Looff Carousel when it was located in Long Beach, CA. She is very knowledgeable about Looff Carousels and has drawn multiple animals from our carousel, like this one below!

Bridget became a monthly supporter of our Looff carousel in 2021, making the joy of a carousel ride available for free to low-income children and families. Join Bridget on Giving Tuesday and throughout the holiday season with your gift to our 2022 Carousel Campaign! A $20 contribution provides free rides for a family of four while a gift of $300 can provide 60 free carousel rides for an under-resourced school. Want to make your giving last all year long like Bridget’s? Join us as a monthly carousel donor by clicking “Monthly” when you make your commitment!


Our goal is to raise $20,000 for carousel operations by December 31st - and we’re more than halfway there! Help us bring joy to thousands of children and their families in our community by making your commitment today.

Thank you in advance for your support - and best wishes for a joyful holiday season!


In community,

Carol Tang
