Pirates and Princesses join forces to raise money for Children's Museum of Siouxland

Posted:

SIOUX CITY (KTIV) - A Sioux City museum that's been in the works for several years hosted what they hope is one of their final fundraisers, and everyone from swashbucklers to royalty turned out to help.

The Pirates and Princesses fundraiser for the Children's Museum of Siouxland set sail Sunday afternoon at Bev's on the River.

More than 1,200 children got their faces painted, played games, and all the while, learned about the mission of the Children's Museum that's to come.

"The fundraising is so important, because it's those last dollars that we need to be able to begin construction. But it helps our future visitors know what we're all about, it helps the families understand what the museum will be like, and it gets them excited about having our doors open," Kari Kellen, Executive Director of the Children's Museum of Siouxland.

The museum has been in the works for a decade, but Kellen said the funding is now in place for construction to begin this summer.
