Play Ball 2018 Starts the Domino Effect!
On Friday October 26, 2018 nearly 700 guests joined honorary co-chairs The Birnbaum Family for Play Ball®—Rochester’s most playful gala! Play Ball attendees enjoyed an evening of larger-than-life fun and festivities featuring creative cocktails, fantastic food, eclectic entertainment, amazing auctions, and a surprise around every corner—all to benefit The Strong. Master magician and entertainer Steven Brundage delighted guests with his Rubik’s Cube magic tricks and unique tricks that made him a favorite on America’s Got Talent.
Play Ball 2018 raised more than $370,000 in support of The Strong's educational mission and outreach programs, as well as the museum’s upcoming transformative expansion project—making this year the most successful Play Ball to date. The Strong is grateful for the generosity of everyone who supported Play Ball and excited to continue to grow this one-of-a-kind, world-class museum. Together we can build a brighter future—a future powered by play.
