Great Night Gala 2022

presented by Duquesne Light Company

Friday, June 24, 2022 at 6:00 pm

Children's Museum of Pittsburgh campus

Join Chair Kevin Walker at the Children's Museum of Pittsburgh, Friday June 24, 2022 for a great night of celebrating being back together again at the Children's Museum of Pittsburgh. 

Enjoy an exhilarating night that celebrates the mettle and metals of Pittsburgh! MuseumLab's new metalworking space, Pittsburgh's metal industries, and the amazing creative possibilities in metal art will all be on display as we dance the night away. There will even some opportunities to try your hand at creating a hammered metal collage, metal stamping and steamroller printing - with an actual larger-than-life steamroller!

Join us for cocktail hour, a seated, outdoor dinner, dessert, and dancing as we raise over $400,000 for the Museum's mission to inspire kindness, joy, creativity, and curiosity for all learners. Valet service will also be provided. 

The Great Night Gala will also include one of a kind experiences and items in the Great Night Gala Auction.

Stay tuned for more details as we closer to the Great Night Gala!
