And The Beat Goes On is the theme and mantra of the 11th annual Children's Museum Gala. In 2018, the Gala looked back at 10 years of growth. This year, we look to the future, and the passion that drives us forward. 

All event proceeds support our Every Child program, which strives to include every child in the critical learning experiences at the Museum, regardless of their family's circumstances. That is why Every Child partners with more than 300 social service organizations and Title I schools to provide admission and memberships to low-income and underserved families. This program also allows the Museum to open its doors, free to the public, during the First Friday night of most months, and for hundreds of children with special needs during our “Special Night of Play” events.

Annually Every Child reaches more than 50,000 individuals, almost 20% of our total attendance.
