2023 Casablanca Gala

We’re still buzzing from the excitement of our 2023 Casablanca Gala! It was a night of celebration, appreciation, and a shared commitment to support the growth of our education programs to inspire and prepare the next generation.

Our Casablanca Gala was truly a night to remember. We had the pleasure of gathering our dedicated donors and friends to celebrate the educational programs and community outreach that we have accomplished for The Health Museum.
