Enchanting evening

This year’s Wonder Ball, Oct. 27, was a black-tie, costume gala that transformed the Madison Children’s Museum into a wonder-filled world for grown-ups, with an elegant Halloween theme. More than $154,000 was raised through the event for the Madison Children’s Museum and the essential programs and resources the museum provides to children and the Greater Madison community. Attendees got to enjoy live music from the Strolling Bones, featuring members of VO5 covering the Rolling Stones, feast upon devilish delicacies and sip perilous potions provided by Heritage Catering, The Roman Candle Catering & Bar Service, and Yahara Bay Distillery, strike a Faustian bargain during opulent raffles and auctions, marvel at the soaring specters of Cycropia Aerial Dance, and discover their fortune in cards and tea leaves.
