Play It Forward, a “Spook”tacular FUNdraiser for Creativity
Benefiting the Chuck Jones Center for Creativity
Sunday, October 22, 1 to 4 PM

Costa Mesa, CA: “It looks like you’re having fun,” was one of the highest compliments given by famed artist, author, and educator, Don Graham, to his students when the work they were doing showed promise. Having fun is an important part of creative endeavors at the Chuck Jones Center for Creativity. “Play It Forward, a FUNdraiser for Creativity—will benefit the programs of the Chuck Jones Center for Creativity, a 501(c)3 public charity,” says Craig Kausen, Chairman of the Board and grandson of Chuck Jones, “everyone remembers knocking on your best friend’s door and asking, ‘can Johnny come out and play’. That’s exactly what Play It Forward is for, having fun and playing, while paying it forward.”
A carnival atmosphere focused on Halloween will pervade this family-friendly event where you and your children will be able to participate in creativity stations throughout the 6000 square foot Center. There will be mask-making, trick or treat bag and faux pumpkin decorating, “Day-of-the-Dead” skeleton head decorating, wire art, lyric-writing, toy-making, animation light-table drawing, and a stop-motion animation station where you’ll be able to make your own cartoon using some of Chuck Jones’s favorite characters like Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Wile E. Coyote, and the Road Runner. 

Play It Forward, a FUNdraiser for Creativity, will be open from 1 to 4 PM on Sunday, October 22 at the Chuck Jones Center for Creativity, 3321 Hyland Ave., Suite A & B, Costa Mesa, Ca. Tickets are $50 per family, regardless of the number of members, and will include a “Mix-Your-Soft-Drink bar, Popcorn, and a Decorate Your Own Brownie station. Plus, there’ll be live music provided by Music Vault Academy! Tickets available at
About the Center: Chuck Jones Center for Creativity, a 501(c)3 public charity located in Orange County, CA. Chuck Jones was a creative genius who gave life to Road Runner, Wile E. Coyote & Bugs Bunny along with over 300 animated films.  The Center, which he founded in 1999, is an organization that fosters and teaches creative thinking—the thinking behind problem solving. It’s a fact that “creativity” is like a muscle in your brain that needs exercise in order to get and stay healthy. The stronger that muscle is, the better it works in engaging tasks and solving problems. The Center serves as a gymnasium for the brain. We work with disadvantaged youth, school systems without arts programs, people on the autism spectrum, the elderly (many of whom suffer from early onset dementia), and other groups, including corporate clients, who see the value of pumping up creativity in their ranks. The Center is located at South Coast Collection (SoCo) in Costa Mesa, convenient to the 405 at Harbor Blvd.
