The Women's Philanthropy Circle 3rd Annual Backyard Bruncheon on Thursday, May 9 was amazing!

Thank you for supporting us. We so appreciate you!

Held at a private residence in Pacific Palisades, proceeds from this year’s event supports the museum’s PLAY4ALL program to allow more kids in our community to experience the wonder of play.


From expanding Title 1 school field trips and PLAY4ALL passes for families experiencing financial hardships, to increasing sensory-friendly programs for children with disabilities, your participation made a huge impact.

Despite its critical role in every child's future, an overwhelming number of children in Los Angeles lack meaningful access to play. All donations help bridge this play divide in our community.
