Events are a vital part of fundraising at The Works. In fact, we’ve been known to throw some of the best parties in central Ohio. Have fun, get involved, and support our high-quality educational programming and interactive environment.

Cocktails by the Fire

This annual friendraiser benefits our Hot Glass Studio, which introduces thousands of guests each year to the amazing art of glass blowing. Feel the heat from the glass furnace as we auction a hand-blown piece created during the event, and your cocktail will taste all the better in our limited edition hand-blown tumbler.

Look for details about our 2018 Cocktails by the Fire soon!



The Works biennial black-tie fundraiser HATSOFF! supports our general operating fund for a two-year period. This evening features silent and live auctions, live glass blowing, a sit-down dinner, drinks, and dancing. See photos from HATSOFF! 2016 The Roaring 20s.


The Summer Party 2017 – Hot Havana Nights

Enjoy an intimate evening of great food, spirits and lively entertainment at our biennial summer fundraising event.
