30th Annual Gala: Light Fantastic
Friday, October 9, 2015
7:30 - 10:00 PM
We invite you to celebrate the United Nations' International Year of Light with us on Friday, October 9, 2015 as we present our 30th Annual Gala, Light Fantastic. Proceeds from the event go directly to funding our educational art and science programming.
This year’s gala theme was chosen to reflect the United Nations’ declaration of 2015 as the International Year of Light to raise awareness of light science and its importance to humanity. Gala attendees will be the first to see the Art & Science Museum’s upcoming exhibition, Sunlight/Starlight, which includes an installation designed by NASA that lets viewers explore the surface of the sun. Guests will also enjoy a view of the nighttime sky from the Irene W. Pennington Planetarium.
A delicious buffet awaits you, featuring Baton Rouge's best restaurants and caterers. Guests also enjoy live music from crowd favorite Ned Fasullo & His Fabulous Big Band Orchestra, and a large silent auction with exclusive packages ranging from original artworks to a stay in a Paris apartment. You can also purchase a chance to win the beautiful Roberto Coin 18-karat gold and diamond bracelet donated by Lee Michaels Fine Jewelry, valued at $4,300!
Tickets are $100 for members and $150 for non-members. Cocktail attire is suggested. Parking will be available at 617 North Blvd. from 5:30 - 11:00 pm with bus transportation to and from the museum.
If you own a business, there is still time to donate! Donate to the silent auction and display your company's signature items for hundreds of guests! Auction Donation Forms are available on the left sidebar. Business Support sponsorships are a good way to network and enjoy an elegant evening on the town.
