Club Tropicana – Saturday, March 10

The Museum School Annual Gala and Auction is our biggest fundraiser of the year. It will be a fun night of cocktails, appetizers, dinner, dancing and bidding. The silent and live auctions feature a wide range of excellent packages that include trips, camps, restaurant nights, theater and museum tickets and SO MUCH MORE!

Read all about it and buy your tickets today!

Procurement Update

Speaking of the Gala…our fall procurement campaign was a huge success. THANK YOU! The due date to turn in your donations is Monday, February 5. If you can get it to us by Friday, February 2 – even better! It is quite a process turning all of our donations into beautiful and cohesive auction packages but somehow we (Jane) do it every year. So, the earlier the better.

We took a quick inventory of what we have so far and came up with a wishlist of items that would help complete packages. If you have a contact at any of these businesses, please consider asking for a donation!
