LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- We had our own Oscar party at the Kentucky Derby Museum Sunday but the stars highlight at the “Night at the Museum” event were the kids of the WHAS Crusade for Children.

The annual event was hosted by Melissa Swan and Terry Meiners. The evening featured dinner, dancing, a silent auction, and of course, the Academy Awards ceremony.

The event raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for the Crusade. Organizers set a goal of raising $6,000 in out-right donations to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Crusade, but donations topped $10,000.
