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.

The next Cocktails by the Fire will be February 2 , 2019.



The Works biennial black-tie fundraiser 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.

The next HATSOFF! will be held October 3, 2020.
