“Reach for the Stars!”
Celebrating the Power of Early Learning
Twenty-Five Years of The Children’s Museum in Easton!

Join us on Saturday, March 11, 2017 for the Museum’s 25th anniversary gala
to celebrate twenty-five years of making learning fun!


The Story

In 1991, four young moms reached out to engage their community in the creation of a children’s museum; a place where children and families could come to play, learn, and grow.

Now, twenty-five years later, The Children’s Museum in Easton is celebrating a quarter century of doing just that.  Over those years, we have welcomed more than 900,000 visitors to the Museum and its programs!

The Event

In recognition of this milestone, we are planning a gala event.  “Reach for the Stars!” will showcase what has taken place over our first 25 years, raise awareness about the importance of early learning and healthy play, and mark the start of our next quarter century of helping children and families become lifelong learners!

The event will be held in the stunning Atrium in the Shields Science Center on the beautiful campus of Stonehill College on Saturday, March 11, 2017 from 6:30 to 11:00 pm, with a cocktail reception at 6:30 pm, followed by dinner and dancing from 7:30 pm to 11:00 pm.

JC Monahan


The cocktail reception will feature a cash bar, passed hors d’oeuvres and a special opportunity to meet our Emcee for the evening: J. C. Monahan, Emmy award-winning journalist, co-anchor of WCVB’s NewsCenter 5 and co-anchor of Channel 5’s award-winning nightly news magazine “Chronicle”  –  and a tireless advocate for children and families!


The evening will continue with gourmet dining at delectable serving stations with superbkrisanthi pappas wine pairings, wickedly delightful desserts, and the sophisticated sounds of The Krisanthi Pappas Quartet.

There will be a limited number of fabulous silent auction items available for bidding throughout the evening – and fun, entertaining raffles galore!
