The Hands On Summer Splash! Gala celebration was a fundraising event with nearly 600 attendees who came to party with a purpose. Thanks to over 60 sponsors and enthusiastic Gala donors, the museum raised critical funds for free & reduced admission programs. Gala attendees also celebrated the magic of childhood and raised their paddles to fund a new majestic tree-house exhibit inspired by the Treehouse Masters. Throughout the night, guest gourmet food stations and signature beverages were enjoyed, and the weather was perfect for dancing the night away with classic-rock music by the Beatniks.
