Join us for South State Bank Day at EdVenture Children’s Museum

February2015eNews_EdventureSaturday, February 21, 2015 is South State Bank Day at EdVenture Children’s Museum in Columbia, SC. The public will receive half-price admission of $5.75 and children under one get in free. Children who are members of the South State Bank Squirrels Club and an accompanying adult will also get in free.

“We are excited to include a financial literacy component in South State Bank Day at EdVenture,” said Montague Laffitte, regional president, South State Bank Central Region. “Children will have the opportunity to participate in a scavenger hunt while learning exactly how much $1,000,000 is and just how fast it can be spent.”

Within the total 92,000 square foot museum, there are more than 350 individual hands-on exhibits. The popular Snowville exhibit allows children to crawl through an ice tunnel, climb a snow-capped mountain, sled down a snowy hill or visit the Penguin Observation Station.

“The Snowville Exhibit will close on February 22 so this is a great opportunity for the community to enjoy this winter wonderland before it ends,” said Kristy Barnes, director of marketing at EdVenture. “We encourage families to take advantage of the gift from South State Bank and enjoy all that the museum has to offer.”

To view a complete list of exhibits, please visit the EdVenture website. EdVenture is located at 211 Gervais Street, Columbia, SC 29201 and their hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

More information about the South State Bank Squirrels Club can be found here by visiting any South State Bank location.
