We’re almost to our new home – the Louisiana Children’s Museum will be opening in City Park this September! We invite you to join us for our very first fundraising event at LCM’s new site, the 21st Annual CHAIRish the Children Gala, to take place on Saturday, September 21st.

Entering the gala, you will walk through the VestiBlue, a nod to the iconic big blue doors on Julia Street, and enjoy fine dining provided by Dickie Brennan & Co. (operators of our new Acorn Café), spiritslive entertainment from The Bucktown All-Stars, and an exciting auction featuring our signature chairs. Explore our new 8.6 acre indoor/outdoor campus that highlights our five educational focus areas – Sustainability, Health and Wellness, Literacy, STEM, and Arts and Culture.
