Captain America’s shield adorned the program for the Discovery Children’s Museum annual gala, but it was the guests who were the real superheroes of the evening, donating thousands to support the organization’s educational program and exhibitions. Some came to Bellagio’s Tower Ballroom outfitted with capes, long sleeves and even Catwoman ears in keeping with the theme. Jill and Troy Moser received the 2017 Great Friend to Kids Award, and the live auction featured a real-life Night at the Museum Party, which raised $10,000 for the organization alone.
