Julia Bland is CEO of Louisiana Children’s Museum (LCM). On Saturday, Aug. 25, LCM will host its 20th CHAIRish the Children auction and gala. “The centerpieces of CHAIRish the Children are one-of-a-kind, whimsical chairs created by local artists,” explains Bland. 

The 2018 fundraiser will be LCM’s last auction and gala at its Julia Street location, where the museum has welcomed children and families for more than three decades. In summer 2019, the Children’s Museum will relocate to an expansive new space in New Orleans’ City Park. Many of LCM’s iconic items will be auctioned at this farewell gala. These favorites include Mr. Bones, the beloved skeleton that taught children how their own bones work when they are riding on a bicycle.

In addition, auction-goers will have opportunities to bid on a total of 250 items featuring travel, dining, jewelry, and art. Help celebrate the Louisiana Children’s Museum’s last gala on Julia Street! For additional information, visit lcm.org.
