Annual Gala

Thank you

The Children’s Museum of Manhattan (CMOM) would like to thank its honorees, speakers, board, staff, and attendees for helping us to exceed our 2017 Gala fundraising goal. Proceeds from the event—held at the Lighthouse, Chelsea Piers on October 25, 2017—help fund the programs and services that CMOM delivers to more than 350,000 Museum visitors each year, and to tens of thousands more people through outreach programs at schools, libraries, homeless shelters, Head Start centers and hospitals.

We couldn’t have done it without you!

The Toy Association™ and The Genius of Play™

Recipients of the Corporate Leadership Award

The Corporate Leadership Award is presented to entities demonstrating philanthropic leadership and dedication to the arts, children, health and education. The Toy Association™ and The Genius of Play™ received this award for their commitment to raising awareness of the vital role of play in child development. The Toy Association and the Children’s Museum also celebrated the 10th anniversary of PlayHelps.

PlayHelps programming has subsequently been adapted by Louisiana Children’s Museum and continues today.
