TwentyWonder: The Carnival of the Mind
June 28, 2014 @ 6:00 pm - 11:00 pm
We’re bringing our games to delight and entertain for a great cause at the fifth annual TWENTYWONDER fundraising event is on Saturday, June 28, 2014 at the home of the nationally acclaimed Los Angeles Derby Dolls. Please save the date for LA’s most exciting summer festival of art, science, music, comedy, and roller derby!
What is TwentyWonder?
TwentyWonder is the brainchild of DSALA Director of Administration and Development Jim Hodgson, whose young son, Henry, was born with Trisomy 21, the scientific name for Down syndrome, and from which the name “TwentyWonder” is derived. Also, it intentionally alludes to the wonders of the Twenty-First century we live in. All proceeds benefit individuals born with Trisomy 21 living in greater Los Angeles.
The first TwentyWonder, held March 6, 2010 in Culver City, California was named “An Event Pick” and called “Awesome!” by the Los Angeles Times. “Part charity, part science, part comedy…a mindbender,” proclaimed LAIST.COM. “A once in a lifetime, completely eclectic, fun-filled amalgam of creators, builders and performers,” said The Wrap and “An amazing event…MAGIC!” raved Forth Magazine.
