Priceless Moments

Miami Children Museum's 25th Annual Gala


With a Gala that celebrated 25 years of “Priceless” experiences for children and families, Miami Children’s Museum (MCM) delighted more than 600 attendees with a host of food catered by the Ritz Carlton South Beach, featuring celebrity Chef Jeff McInnis and Executive Chef Thomas Connell, entertainment featuring a concert by the Average White Band, and a spirited auction that helped successfully raise more than $750,000 for the Museum’s programming.




Perhaps the crowning jewel of the evening was the announcement that philanthropist Gloria Martin has donated $1 million to the launch of MCM’s Capital Endowment Fund Campaign that will work to insure the Museum’s viability for years to come. Additionally, the Knight Foundation committed $100,000 to the Capital Campaign.

Among the more than 600 of attendees for the festivities were: Nicole Miller, Romero Britto, Lisa and Donald Pliner, Gisela and Diego Lowenstein, Tracey Mourning, Gloria Martin, Jeff and Yolanda Berkowitz, Claudia Potamkin, Lisa Schejola Akin and Jeffrey Akin, Richard and Susan Lampen, Mo Abety, Evan and Stephanie Reed, FJ and Abigail Pollak, Richard and Sandy Berkowitz.
