Brooklyn Children’s Museum’s
Spring Benefit

Wednesday, May 24, 2017

at Brooklyn Children’s Museum
145 Brooklyn Avenue
Brooklyn, New York

Over 300 guests attended Brooklyn Children’s Museum’s Spring Benefit.

Together, we championed the importance of arts and culture for all children in Brooklyn.

Together, we funded a free summer camp program for 100 children in Crown Heights and Brownsville.

Together, we met a challenge gift from our Board of Directors and raised over $450,000 and counting!

On behalf of the Board of Trustees and staff of Brooklyn Children’s Museum, thank you!
