Children's Museum Houston's Annual Gala is going virtual! Join us for A Marvelous Night Virtual Gala presented by Phillips 66. These unusually challenging times call for unusually powerful solutions. This year's gala is co-chaired by the Executive Committee of the Children's Museum Houston Board.

If we ever needed superheroes to the rescue, this is the year! Join us from the comfort of your home for a one night only, live broadcast as we celebrate the superheroes who enable us to serve Houston’s children. There will be surprise visits, music, a fabulous auction, and gourmet dining and wine delivered to your home by Jackson & Company.

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.

The event will be streamed live via QTEGO and the Museum’s Facebook page.

  • Hosted by Great Day Houston’s Deborah Duncan and Houston Public Media’s Ernie Manouse.
  • Committee members transform into mighty superheroes and recognize real-life heroes who enable us to serve Houston’s children.
  • Superhero correspondents will swoop across the evening sky to make special visits.
  • Jackson & Company will serve a meal fit for a superhero to top underwriters.
  • Nearly 100 hot action (auction) packages are available for bidding.
  • The event will culminate with a live performance by Love and Happiness Band.
  • Everyone is invited to join and bid from wherever they are!
