Great Night Gala
Held Friday, June 8, 2018
Guests joined Gala chairs Bonnie and Tom VanKirk for a stylish evening inspired by the Thomas & Friends: Explore the Rails™ exhibit and the era of classic train travel.
The Children's Museum honored Chip Burke and the Burke family for their lifetime commitment to our city with the Great Friend of Children Award. The Burkes, along with the Nicholson Family of Short Hills, NJ, established The Grable Foundation 42 years ago to improve the lives of children and families in our community.
