An Important Update about our Intergalactic Space Party!

DSC_0243The party date is fast approaching, and has changed! Mark your calendars, this party will take place on Friday, April 29th, 2016 from 7pm – 11pm.

We would also like to add that as much as we would love to read minds, and know your favourite drinks, we may not supply everything you desire.  We will have a very limited supply of wine and beer in exchange for a small donation.  We encourage you to BYOB, in other words, bring your own booze!

Also, bring your loonies and toonies for our very special Story Planet Live Auction at 8:30pm Bid on hidden Story Planet Gems, ranging from an anonymous book to a broken space clock (because time is a flat circle). We will also have a raffle featuring Nokia Phones, cookbooks, AND MORE! It is sure to be a blast!

Story Planet is Going Mobile

Friends of Story Planet, we have exciting news! Our cosmic prayers have been answered and Story Planet has received a much needed grant! However, as of Saturday, April 30th we are closing our physical space and going mobile. From June on we’ll be taking our Storymaker workshops to schools all over the GTA. Stay tuned for more developments. In the meantime, check out how you can get involved with our move!

Help Us Clean Our Space!

cleanupWe’re looking for volunteers to help us organize, package, and deliver items from Story Planet on Wednesday, April 20th and Thursday, April 21st. If you can’t come in to help us physically clean and organize our space, we are also looking for people who have access to a vehicle who can transport our treasures to other charities and communities. Times are flexible. Contact volunteer@storyplanet.ca for more information and to arrange a time to come in. Also, if you know of any organizations who could benefit from art supplies and other space matter, please let us know.

Shop Our Space Debris Sale!
Story Planet is hosting a one-of-a-kind space debris sale from April 20-30! We’ve got desks and chairs used by some of the most creative minds to have ever graced our world, cabinets to hold all those colouring books you purchased from our Adult Colouring and Wine Night, and more! Pictures and details coming soon. Email Liz at liz@storyplanet.ca for specific inquiries.

Come to Our Intergalactic Space Party!
We’re hosting the space party of the millennium in our space on Thursday, April 28 from 7-11 to celebrate all our wonderful friends, volunteers, and people of our beloved community and thank you for all you have done to support us in our space. From all the mentors in the Lift Off After School Program, to the hustling life forms that frequented our Story Planet Intergalactic Cafe, you are the reason why our mission is able to keep on going. Weather permitting, we plan to open up our space deck to enjoy a beautiful night under the stars for our brightest stars…YOU!

More details to follow. All are welcomed!
