We thank everyone who participated in our 20th Anniversary Glass Auction & Gala. We were so pleased to welcome so many old and new friends to pay tribute to our founder and help support our work. The Auction is the Museum’s most significant fundraiser of the year: 100% of the proceeds will support the Museum’s education and outreach programs for kids. All of our sponsors, attendees, bidders, and contributors helped make this year’s event one of our most successful auctions ever!

Please enjoy these photos of this wonderful evening.
