The Annual Gala serves as the Museum’s cornerstone fundraising event. Guests are welcomed to a cocktail reception and unparalleled silent auction, featuring the world’s most beautiful natural wonders, such as rare fossils and fine gem and mineral formations. Following cocktail hour, guests partake in a three-course seated dinner, with tables scattered throughout the Museum’s stunning exhibit halls. Then, everyone hits the dance floor! Funds raised are critical to the Museum’s operations and to promoting science education to almost 2 million visitors and 500,000 students each year.
