Annual Fundraisers

Each year, we host events designed to create community and invite people to become involved in Play Sharity Gallup Children's Museum.

These events are sponsored by community businesses, and are free or low cost to attend so that everyone can join in the fun.

In October 2024, we hosted our first annual fundraiser, A Day of Play, which featured bouncy houses, a foam party, games, a wacky walkway, touch-an-excavator, pop-up exhibits, and food trucks.  The generous support of sponsors and community members helped us raise $11,000!

On May 4, 2024, we held The Color Run fundraiser, hosted at Hózhó Academy.
