Liquidate the Loan Campaign

OH WOW!’s “Liquidate the Loan” Campaign kicked off in October 2016 with a goal of $145,000. To date $42,000 has been raised with 100% of our Board of Directors participating.

We will allocate our resources to expand and enhance our STEM programs and services – EDUtainment – for our children, their children and their grandchildren.  Everyone donating to OH WOW!’s “Liquidate the Loan” Campaign will have their name inscribed on a special donor plaque located in our main lobby.

You can be PROUD of what your support has allowed us to accomplish. We at OH WOW! pledge to always be good stewards of your investment dollars. Thank you.

Over the Edge 2016

OH WOW! was proud to be a Drop Zone sponsor at this year’s Over the Edge.  All proceeds from this WOWtastic event went to Beatitude House, which is celebrating its 25th year in serving homeless and disadvantaged women and children in Mahoning, Trumbull, and Ashtabula counties. As part of our sponsorship OH WOW! was excited to offer FREE admission to the museum on Saturday, September 24th.

We are very proud of our very own WOW! Pal Jazzmine, that represented OH WOW! as she stepped out OVER THE EDGE!
