The Gala will be on Friday, Dec. 6, beginning at 6 p.m. at the museum on the campus of St. Gregory's University, 1900 W. MacArthur. Black tie and glass slippers are optional.

The event provides dinner and entertainment to raise funds to support the museum's educational projects for the thousands of school children from across Oklahoma who visit the museum each year. Last year more than 13,000 kindergarten through college age students came to the Museum.

The 2013 Bringing the World to Oklahoma theme features “Once Upon a Time in Russia.”

Activities for the evening include a silent auction, dinner catered by Chicago Street Catering Co., a live auction, St. Gregory's dance students and teachers in ballet, and Russian Duo Kalinka performing during the Dessert bar.
