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

This extraordinary event will feature sumptuous food, drink, and, of course, fun!


This year, we are pleased to present:

The Corporate Philanthropy Award to Bank of America for its long-standing support not only of the Museum but of our community’s most vulnerable families.

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

The Portia and Otto Sperr Legacy Award will be presented to Sally Stetson 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!
