Raise money for DuPage Children's Museum

The "Driven to Give - Party with a Purpose" fundraiser for the DuPage Children's Museum offers guests the chance to choose their evening's adventure.

Some will have the chance to test drive new BMW models and check out the BMWs and MINIs in the showrooms of host site Bill Jacobs BMW, 2495 Aurora Ave., Naperville.

And some can try their luck in a limited-entry raffle of a trip to Mexico.

The adults-only fundraiser, organized by the children's museum's Next Gen Board, is Friday, Oct. 20, at the car dealership. Organizers are offering two types of tickets.

Main Event Only tickets, $75, invite patrons to the party from 8 to 11 p.m. for a DJ, heavy appetizers, open bar, silent auction and raffle.

The VIP tickets, $125, invite guests to test drive sports cars before joining a cocktail reception and then the main event. Those with VIP tickets will be able to explore both the BMW and MINI parts of the dealership.

During the main event, the Next Gen Board will raffle off a five-night stay at the Fairmont Mayakoba Resort in Riviera Maya, Mexico. Tickets are $100 each, and only 100 tickets will be sold.

Event and raffle tickets are available online at
