Join us for Spark After Dark Austin's most playful party of the year!

Spark After Dark is Austin’s most playful part of the year! Taking place at Thinkery, the event is an evening of wonder, learning, and play to celebrate Thinkery’s impact on our community and raise critical funds to ensure ALL children and families can access our inspirational, play-based learning programs through the Open Door Initiative.   


The evening will be vibrant – guests will have the chance to learn more about our programs while also engaging in some play-based fun of their own and enjoying tasty nibbles and sips. 


Play. Learn. Give. It’s the perfect recipe for a night of fun and impact! 


Rather than asking you to purchase a table or a ticket, we’re inviting all Thinkery donors who give at the $500 level and above between December 7, 2021 and September 30, 2022.
