The Gala Chairs 2020: Michele Slaine and Sarah Purcell

GCM works hard everyday to ensure that children and their families have a fun, hands-on, safe place to play and learn in the Triad and beyond.

On Friday, October 2 GCM will host its annual fundraiser The Gala presented by Greensboro Center for Pediatric Dentistry. Sponsors and patrons alike will be delighted as the Museum transforms into a playground for adults to celebrate and savor. The evening continues to be a fun, relaxing way to showcase not only the successes of the museum but also some of the best bites and sips in town. Chefs, brewers, distillers and vintners come from around the Piedmont to showcase their craft for a one of a kind night including live music, our popular giving tree, and silent auction.

The Greensboro Children’s Museum is thrilled to have the support of many of our city’s businesses and individuals. The Museum has been a downtown Greensboro icon for over twenty years. In that time we have drawn close to three million visitors through our doors. Our supporters know that an investment in Greensboro Children’s Museum is an investment in accessible early childhood education in the downtown area. Past sponsors of The Gala know that their dollars make a difference –  they keep coming back because the know The Gala is one of the best parties of the year.  Help support a Greensboro family cornerstone, become a Gala sponsor today and come eat, drink, and play with us on October 2!
