Get ready ‘cause this party’s gonna to be the cat’s meow! Miami Children’s Museum (MCM) will transport you back to the heyday of the roaring twenties as they celebrate the 4th Annual “Be a Kid Again Gala: Tropical Twenties” Gala on Saturday, September 29th at 8:00 p.m. Hosted by Gala Co-Chairs Donald and Lisa Pliner, and Bob and Michelle Diener, the Museum invites you to its home on Watson Island for a night of pure uncomplicated fun to benefit arts and educational programming at MCM.

Put your glad rags on and do the jig as MCM takes you on a journey through the decadence and glamour of the twenties. MCM’s fourteen exhibit galleries will be ab-so-lute-ly crawling with dancing flappers, gangsters, sultry jazz music and art deco décor.
