This past Saturday, Chance the Rapper kicked off the Museum of Science and Industry’s Christmas exhibit by switching on the four-story tall Grand Tree.

During the festivities, he announced the return of SocialWorks‘ “A Night at the Museum” event taking place on Dec. 21 at MSI. The event serves as a holiday fundraiser and donation hub for the Warmest Winter clothing drive, benefiting homeless Chicagoans. 

The Horowitz Family Charitable Fund and Aetna Better Health of IL are among this year’s generous sponsors.

At “A Night at the Museum,” guests can enjoy MSI’s Christmas Around the World and Holidays of Light exhibit. The exhibit showcases over 50 trees and displays, decorated by volunteers, representing holiday traditions from various cultures, including one from SocialWorks. Attendees can explore 50+ event-only vendors, activations, and performers. They have the chance to connect with Chance and learn about SocialWorks’ plans for 2024.

The event also focuses on collecting donations for Chicago’s homeless population. Guests are encouraged to bring and donate items like coats, scarves, gloves, toys, and hygiene products to support those in need.

Tickets for “A Night at the Museum” are on sale now on EventNoire, a black-owned ticket company. Additional information about Christmas Around the World and Holidays of Light can be found online at
