Totally ’80s Birthday Bash

The New Children’s Museum transformed its 50,000-square-foot venue into Studio 200 on Island, a vibrant after-hours club, for its annual fundraiser. The 2018 theme, “Totally ’80s Birthday Bash,” celebrated the decade the museum was founded. Entertainment included an ’80s arcade, roller skating rink, photo ops with a life-size DeLorean, a Cheers-themed bar, and a rendition of “Wake Me Up Before You Go Go,” sung by a George Michael impersonator. The event brought in more than $112,000 in support of the museum’s creative programming and access for children and families.
