2015 Be a Kid Again Gala
“007 you only live twice” 
Saturday, February 28th, 2015


It’s time to be a kid again! On Saturday, February 28th, Miami Children’s Museum will celebrate its annual Be A Kid Again Gala.  Always a sell-out event, the gala is considered by many to be the most fun event of the South Florida social season. This year’s event will feature a unique theme based on the film series James Bond 007. The evening will include live entertainment, a luxurious auction and a culinary experience unlike any other.
Guests will be greeted with the red carpet elegance of 007 James Bond. The night kicks off with a not-to-be-missed cocktail reception inside the Museum’s galleries filled with an extensive silent auction featuring wine lots from all over the world.  The main event of the evening will include an energetic live auction followed by a concert performance. All the while, guests will enjoy Martini’s and more. Shaken not stirred.
Complementing our “007 you only live twice” themed evening you will be treated to tasty libations and tempting culinary treats that will bring to life iconic memories of the many 007 films that take us around the world.
