PEORIA (WEEK) — The Peoria PlayHouse Children’s Museum received a $10,000 donation on Sunday to honor their 6th birthday.
The Junior League of Peoria presented the donation this afternoon to celebrate the museum’s ongoing success.
The Junior League holds an endowment to support the PlayHouse each year, and donates the proceeds to them.
Junior League member, Jocelyn McDowell, said they felt fortunate to be able to this amount of money.
“We wanted to make sure that the year the PlayHouse was able to reopen after having being closed for 14 months, we were able to give something that is so deep to our hearts a very strong opening,” said McDowell.
McDowell said the donation will be put toward two different exhibits at the museum.
