Children's Museum Houston's 2020 'A Marvelous Night' Virtual Gala

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s the Virtual Children’s Museum Houston 2020 Gala, A Marvelous Night!

We had planned to put on our superhero capes and celebrate in person, but our arch enemy COVID has thwarted our plans this year. Have no fear we will save the day by taking the Gala virtual on Saturday, October 24th.

Livestream will begin promptly at 7:00PM!

Join us from the comfort of your own home for a one night only, live broadcast as we celebrate the superheroes who enable us to serve Houston’s children. Enjoy a fabulous live and silent auction, music, and wonderful words of support, all emcee'd by Houston's own Ernie Manouse and Deborah Duncan! Every penny raised from this event will be used to help keep the Museum doors open so that we can continue to provide innovative, child-centered learning to families in the Greater Houston area as we’ve done for the past forty years. 

Help us reach our goal of $800,000 by bidding on our many wonderful auction items and participating in our live auction the night of the event! Encourage your family and friends to join us for our live stream and participate in the online auction!

Auction is now LIVE and will close on October 24th at 9:00PM.

Auction Items will be available for pick-up at the Children's Museum Houston's Admin offices following the virtual event.  A CMH representative will contact winners to make arrangements. 

Questions? Please contact Logan Vaden, Fundraising Events Manager, at or (713) 535-7210

We look forward to celebrating A Marvelous Night with you all!
