THE SETTING:  With the air humming with vibrant energy, cocktails flowing, a curated menu and interactive activities, you would never guess The DoSeum’s Sixth Annual Birthday Bash gala wasn’t an actual gala. Opting to forgo a formal virtual event program, The DoSeum created an exclusive fete to be held at home, complete with in-person delivery of ‘tables’–the museum’s signature Fiesta Boxes packed with local eats and treats, libations, and perfectly portioned meals. With over 30 tables sold, 15 of which transformed into festive dinner parties, this decidedly non-event was the event to attend.

THE STYLE: Tables sold for over $2,500 received a meal for ten and five Fiesta Boxes. The delectable Fiesta Boxes were filled with Cinco de Mayo amenities like Dulce Vida tequila, Shiner Beer, Rico’s chips and queso, and more. Because of the generous contributors, thousands of children and their caregivers across San Antonio will continue to enjoy access to The DoSeum, the only children’s museum in San Antonio.

THE PURPOSE: Katie Fravell, Amy Feik Garcia, and Anna Ziegler were the co-chairs for the sold-out evening that raised over $200,000. The museum is  dedicated to providing access to fun, hands-on learning experiences, and informal educational experiences, which are more valuable now than ever during this digital age.
