Young at Heart Benefit

Young at Heart 2016

The 12th annual Young at Heart celebration was a fantastic success, far surpassing our goals!  Thank you to everyone involved!

The event was held on Friday, May 20 at South Hills Golf & Country Club.  Proceeds from the event supported the Children’s Museum’s educational programming and outreach to low-income families.  In addition, nearly $30,000 was raised for the Museum’s new MakerSpace programs & area development.  The event also honored the Friend of the Museum Award recipient.

2016 Friend of the Museum Award Recipients:

Family of John E. & Susan O. Ahern
with Special Tribute to Our Founding Board Members:  Rose A. Ahern & Terrence J. Gaffney

          The Friend of the Museum Award honors individuals and organizations that improve the lives of children through selfless commitment and/or service to the Museum.
