NAPERVILLE, Ill. (WLS) — ABC7 Meteorologist Larry Mowry served as the emcee of the DuPage Children’s Museum Virtual Benefit Ball.

“As a scientist, I want to instill in my kids the curiosity of learning, and play is the way to develop that skill early,” Mowry said. “Science and learning are about making mistakes and finding ways to solve problems. Play does that for kids. We are so fortunate to have a place like DuPage Children’s Museum to show kids the Power of Play, but also to show parents the Power of Play and its importance.”

DuPage Children’s Museum (DCM) previously had scheduled its annual Benefit Ball for April 18, 2020. The coronavirus pandemic forced the museum to reschedule the event and move to a virtual format.

This year’s event was held online June 20. Over $200,000 was raised at this years event.
