When you’re with Mary Poppins, suddenly you’re going places you never dreamed of!

The magic of Mary Poppins comes to life at this Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious evening of fun!

Only Please Touch Museum could host such an enchanting event in historic Memorial Hall. You never know who might fly in on the wind to join the festivities!

Philadelphia’s premier catering company, Brulee, will serve sumptuous hors d’oeuvres prior to a plated meal as the program begins. Join us as we honor:

Bank of America with the Corporate Philanthropy Award for its long-standing support of the Museum and our community’s most vulnerable families.

Garrett Snider with the Young Philanthropy Award for his growing impact on the education and protection of youth through the Childhood Resilience Foundation.

Sally Stetson with the Portia and Otto Sperr Legacy Award for her unwavering dedication to the Museum over many years, fulfilling our founder’s dream with grace and vision.


We invite you to be part of this special evening!

Your generosity directly supports our critically important work. Every year, we welcome 500,000 guests of all ages for inspiring programs and hands-on activities. We are committed to assuring that price and ability are not a barrier to any family experiencing the magic of our Museum – and nearly 20% of our visitors enter at no or low cost thanks to programs for Philadelphia school children and those with special needs.

Thank you to our sponsors!
