PHILANTHROPIC EVENTS >>
Our philanthropic events have become some of Orange County’s most celebrated social events where we come together for fun and networking to celebrate Pretend City while raising significant funds benefitting young children. Thank you to the many supporters who have participated in our events as guests, individual donors, and corporate sponsors.
Our annual Poker event invites guests to go big or go home. It’s a night of all-around fun, lively antics, and the chance to strike it big for early childhood education. Many thanks to our generous players and donors who helped us raise over $200,000 at our 10th Annual Poker Tournament in 2019. Check back soon for more information for our 2020 event set for TBD – late Fall.
Our annual Start Smart Luncheon held each fall brings together Pretend City champions, early childhood experts, and other community leaders in conversation on our community’s collective work to advance early learning to ensure our children’s healthy future. In 2019, 140 generous sponsors and friends of the Museum came together to raise net $117,000 for early childhood educational programming.
Healthy Kids, Healthy Museum
To protect the health of Pretend City Children’s Museum community, we ask families to please only come play with us on days that everyone is feeling well.
