aSTEAM Village Avant Garde Casino Night is our annual fundraiser that enables our organization to sustain our successful STEaM programs for youth from throughout the Kansas City metropolitan area.
aSTEAM Village is holding our 4th Annual Avant Garde Fundraiser on Thursday, October 10th, 2019 at the Magnolia Venue and Urban Garden.
Last Year was amazing and this year will not disappoint! 2018 3rd Annual Avant Garde Photos
The purpose of this fundraiser is to enable aSTEAM Village to deliver programming and cover competition expenses for our robotics, race car engineering challenge, Spaceflight Experiments, Future City, Try-Math-A-Lon and Science teams for the 2019-2020 season. Proceeds also help us to cover building repairs at our facility which is located at 1600 Dr. Martin Luther King Blvd., Kansas City, MO.
Last year we were blessed with Astronaut Dr. Guion Bluford sharing his journey with us. This year, our special guests will be the four students and their teacher who sent an experiment to the International Space Station to be performed by the scientists aboard the ISS. At 6:15 PM, the students will present their findings of the experiment as it was returned to earth and harvested by the students on September 5th.
This year's event will have a twist as in addition to the evening of live music, food, dance, 50/50 raffle, silent and live auctions as we will have a fun, action-packed Casino Night theme with table games, roulette and the money wheel. We will also have Thursday Night Football on the big screen so that there will be fun activities for everyone.
