Presented by IBERIABANK, Cirque du CMOM is a major annual fundraiser for the Children’s Museum of Memphis. Enjoy an evening of fabulous food from local restaurants, drinks, live entertainment, the ever-popular silent disco and so much more! Funds raised through this event go straight to the museum to help with programming and exhibits, to expand outreach programs, increase museum access to under-resourced children and families, provide educational resources to teachers and much more.

What to wear: This is what we like to call a “creative cocktail” look. It means something different for everyone, but for the gals, we recommend a fun dress with a pair of heels and some bold statement jewelry. Fellas, tie and sport coat is spot-on!

The Event: GreenShoe Gala

Find your best green accessory, and head to the GreenShoe Gala! Emceed by Ron Childers and Joyce Peterson, this is a festive evening of dinner and dancing, plus a wine and whiskey pull and a Kendra Scott jewelry pull. Proceeds from the evening help keep Shelby Farms Park and Shelby Farms Greenline clean, safe and green.

What to wear: This is a dressy occasion, so we recommend wearing your favorite “LGD” (little green dress) or cocktail gown. Men can either dress in a black suit, slacks or even a nice sport coat. Don’t forget your green accessory!
