MHCM 30th Anniversary Gala

September 14, 2019 | 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm

You Won’t Believe Your Eyes!

Event Location:  The Wallace Center at the FDR Presidential Library and Museum (Hyde Park, NY)

True to the evening’s theme of “You Won’t Believe Your Eyes,” we will be shaking things up and doing things differently from other gala events.
On the eve of our actual 30th anniversary, this will be PARTY from start to finish!
Guests will be treated to unexpected experiences and science surprises around every corner, and will dance the night away to the funk and Motown music of New York City’s JT Bowen and the Mighty Kings of Soul. The fare will be fitting to our theme of “You Won’t Believe Your Eyes” . . . and rumor has it . . . there will be robots!
We are thrilled to be recognizing both the Dyson Foundation and the Council of Industry for their respective roles in supporting the Mid-Hudson Children’s Museum’s growth, visioning and increased educational impact.
