BMO Harris Bank Becomes Major Supporter Of The Children's Museum Of Green Bay
GREEN BAY, Wis., Oct. 31, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The jukebox at The Diner in the new Children's Museum of Green Bay will now be known as the BMO Harris Bank Jukebox as a result of a major contribution from BMO Harris Bank.
The unique facility, which opened this past summer, offers ten interactive galleries, a make-and-take Imagination Station and two celebration rooms designed for children up to the age of 12 and their families. The Diner, which is a throw back to the '50s, allows children and families to be the diner or the waitstaff – serving up burgers and fries.
"I'm humbled and honored to see that the newest addition to downtown demonstrates Green Bay's commitment to children, play and learning—in the city's very heart," said Toni Burnett, Executive Director of The Children's Museum of Green Bay. "Without the support and vision of companies like BMO Harris Bank the children's museum would not exist. We appreciate their support and look forward to serving the community for years to come."
In an increasingly complex world, children's museums provide a place where all kids can learn through play with the caring adults in their lives. The Children's Museum Of Green Bay brings children and families together in a new kind of Town Square, where play inspires lifelong learning. Outreach programs for at-risk and under-served youth, school partnerships, and parent resource programs in early childhood are just some of the ways children's museums serve families in their communities.
"We're delighted to be able to support the Children's Museum of Green Bay, which provides children with exhibits and programs that stimulate curiosity and motivate learning," said Mike Simmer, Green Bay Market President. "At BMO Harris Bank, we believe that by building stronger communities and by investing in the neighborhoods, towns, cities and regions where we operate – we help provide real and tangible social benefits."
