Children’s Museum supporters joined in a vibrant celebration of Long Island’s diverse community and toasted a bright future for all children and families. Attendees at the 2019 Cupcakes & Gala fundraisers stepped into a kaleidoscope of colors and experiences highlighting the Museum’s audience and activities.  Experiential activities and dynamic performances presented guests with a multifaceted view of Long Island Children’s Museum.

The annual event, honoring Nassau County Executive Laura Curran, raised over $600,000 to support Museum programs, exhibits and outreach initiatives. The evening was Co-Chaired by Scott Rechler (President & CEO, RXR Realty) and George Tsunis (President & CEO, Chartwell Hotels).
