CHICAGO — The Museum of Science and Industry will be open for a late-night party to help charity.

SocialWorks — the charity started by Chance the Rapper — is hosting its “A Night at the Museum” event to collect items for people who are homeless. Attendees will be able to explore the Museum of Science and Industry during the night, watch special performances, win items in giveaways and more, according to the event’s Facebook page.

Attendees can also bring “warming items,” like coats and blankets, that will be donated to people in need. Warming items can also include entertainment items, like music players with headphones and chargers.

Last year, A Night at the Museum helped SocialWorks collect more than 10,000 “warming items,” and the charity hopes to gather even more this year, according to the group.

The event is 6-10 p.m. Dec. 20 at the museum, 5700 S. Lake Shore Drive. Tickets are available online. General admission costs $10 and a four-pack of tickets costs $30. Twitter @BauerJournalism
