About the Gala

“A Celebration of Women in Sports”

Your support will help us reach our goal of establishing America’s only all-women sports museum. The idea of a women’s sports museum was inspired by a former All American Girls Professional Baseball League (AAGPBL) player and her teammates. The goal of the museum is to fulfill the critical mission of cataloguing, preserving and displaying historically significant sports-related materials. In addition to celebrating the achievements, The Women’s Sports Museum will also focus on the future through education and outreach programs.
