Discovery Gala 2020: Play It Forward

Save the Date: Saturday, October 3, 2020

In October our community will come together for an inspiring night of food, fun, and play—all in support of the many ways we make Discovery Museum welcoming and accessible to all children and families. We believe every child deserves opportunities to be creative, invent, discover, learn, and play—and Discovery Museum is committed to making them a reality for all kids. Each year, we serve nearly a quarter of our audience for free or at low cost through programs tailored to the unique needs of children with disabilities and limited financial means. That’s 51,000 people in 2019 who, thanks to the generous support of our donors, experienced our hands-on, playful approach to learning without the barrier of cost. Let's play it forward so that more kids will have access to the critical, early experiences in science, nature, and play that make a real difference!

Thank you to all Discovery Gala 2019 Sponsors
