“Surf’s Up!” at the Children’s Museum of Oak Ridge, where the 20th annual Gala will feature a beach-themed evening with dinner and entertainment from 6-9:30 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 3. The event will have a little STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math) mixed in with entertainment by area youth, dinner from Calhoun’s, a costume contest, and a live auction with Clinton auctioneer Bear Stephenson.
