Many thanks to everyone who ran away and joined the circus at Wonder Ball 2019!


Wonder Ball: Vintage Circus

Friday, October 18, 2019, 7–11 p.m.

From the elephant, to games, to unicycles, to dancing — Wonder Ball was an evening of laughter and brilliant spectacle, all in support of Madison’s children and families. The early tallies show that together we raised over $165,000 for Madison Children’s Museum and the priceless programs and resources that it provides to our children and our community.

New this year, view our Wonder Ball event video below with highlights from the night! Many thanks to Full Compass for the gift of this video.

To relive the magic, check out our photo gallery on Facebook or Flickr. Also if you missed your photo booth pictures you can download them here.
