Thank you for being a piece of the puzzle!
On Friday October 21, 2022, more than 550 guests joined honorary chair Aaron C. Newman for Play Ball®—Rochester’s most playful gala! Play Ball attendees enjoyed an evening of fun and festivities featuring creative cocktails, fantastic food, eclectic entertainment, amazing auctions, and a surprise around every corner—all to benefit The Strong. Comedy stuntman Matt Baker delighted guests with his humor and tricks in two playful performances.
Play Ball 2022 raised more than $440,000 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.
Mark your calendars for Friday, October 20 for Play Ball 2023!
