Mennello Museum of Art: Where Fairies Come to Life!

The Top 5 ventured to the magical Mennello Museum of Art to see some real magic come to life… glowing mushrooms and wood fairies came out to play under the oldest oak tree in Orlando. (225 years old I hear!)  This unusual fundraiser, entitled Magnifique, benefited Voci Dance…and it was so much fun!

And, while we were strolling among the fairy folk, we also ventured into the museum itself… what a treat!  If you have never been to the museum before, do yourself a favor and stop by this lovely place. You will feel like you’ve been transported to Santa Fe!

Special thanks to Mark Baratelli of TheDailyCity.com for the heads up about Magnifique fundraiser!

Magnifique: A Glowing Fairy Fundraiser

Oh, now this sounds so totally cool!  Imagine the gorgeous outdoor setting of the Mennello Museum of Art, where there are giant Live Oaks that are over 300 years old…

And then picture the sun setting and as dusk gathers, the fairy folk begin to emerge from their hiding spots, bringing a luminous glow to the grounds! This is the vision of Voci Dance and their Magnifique, a Glowing Fairy Fundraiser.

Envision yourself sipping wine as you stroll about the garden setting, taking in the magical fairies dancing about glowing mushrooms (from artist Doug Rhodehamel).

And, you can join the mystical fun for just $15 on November 20. For more details about what else is in story on this special night, check out TheDailyCity.com!
