What a fantastic turnout at the GiGi’s Playhouse “sneak a peek” event on Sunday, January 31st.  More than 125 attendees came to visit our site that will open late spring/early summer. The program began with welcoming comments by GiGi’s Board President and Vice President  Zane Torgrude and Patrick Ryan.  Patrick was thrilled to announce that we had already raised over $1500 for our “Believe in the Build” campaign before the day’s event even started.  Families walked around the space while comparing it to the rendering and layout pictures.  Everyone was excited about the plans and many approached board members offering to volunteer. There was also a  “Wish List Giving Tree” where families could take tags listing an item for purchase. One excited family ran to the store and brought their items right back to us that day!

The GiGi’s Playhouse Board appreciates everyone’s patience as we know the  process of bringing GiGi’s to Madison has been a long one – longer than even we expected. But we promise it will be worth the wait.  Thanks for sticking with us as we move forward!

A special thanks goes out to WISC-TV for attending the event and filming it for broadcast.  Their coverage and support is greatly appreciated.  Also special thanks to Laura Frazier of Raspberry Lane Photography for donating her services at the event.  Please check out her website at:
