About the Event

Step back to a time when glamour and exclusivity were paramount – Fitzgerald’s 1920s! Experience Puttin' on the Ritz in style at the luxurious Corinthian as chairs Devorah and David Krieger and Ashley and Jonathan Sloan host a Great Gatsby Gala benefitting Children's Museum Houston! Join us for one of Houston's most anticipated events of the year as you dance the night away to live music by Love & Happiness and indulge in glitz, glam and elegance for a great cause.

Funds raised from the Gala will be used to keep the Children's Museum open so that we can provide innovative child-centered learning to families in the Greater Houston area as we've done for the past four decades. As we move forward in these uncertain times, parents and children will continue to need our high-quality learning opportunities and resources more than ever, and Children's Museum Houston is committed to serving these families.
