GREENWICH, Conn. -- The Junior League of Greenwich, the Boys & Girls Club of Greenwich, and the Bruce Museum partnered in an inaugural event, "A Purrrfect Night: Pizza and PJs at the Bruce Museum," was held on March 4.
Fifty excited and pajama-clad kids, ages 6 to 10, were shuttled from the Boys and Girls Club to the Bruce Museum, to explore the "Fierce and Fragile: Big Cats in the Art of Robert Dallet" exhibit.
The kids also created cat masks, had a pizza party and watched "The Lion King."
"We kept the movie we were showing a surprise, and when 'The Lion King' finally came on to the screen, the kids cheered with excitement," Alexandra Kavulich, chair for this event on behalf of the Junior League of Greenwich, said. "In the iconic 'Circle of Life' scene, when Rafiki holds Simba up in the movie, the kids held up their own stuffed animals to mimic it."
Program director of the Boys and Girls Club of Greenwich Don Palmer said, "Our members had a great time at the Bruce Museum making tiger masks, seeing a fantastic exhibit on big cats and watching 'The Lion King.' Thank you also to the Junior League of Greenwich for such a fun night out for our children."
