This Saturday, March 9, hundreds of Miami’s business, civic, and philanthropic leaders will gather for The Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science’s annual 2013 Galaxy Gala. The gala is benefitting the Museum’s new state of the art facility now under construction in downtown Miami’s Museum Park.
The event, set to take place at the JW Marriott Marquis, will carry an aquatic theme inspired by the new Museum’s 600,000 gallon aquarium, which is the world’s first gulfstream tank. Guests of the event will be surrounded by live fish tanks, an LED screen over the dance floor to make them feel as if they are under the sea, and plenty other exciting aquatic elements.
Proceeds from the annual gala will support the museum’s new facility, as well as current educational programs and year-round exhibits. The museum serves an estimated 50,000 children each year through school visits and hundreds more are served through its award-winning outreach programs in schools and city parks.
Coinciding with the Galaxy Gala is the museum’s Big Bang after party sponsored by Magic City Casino and the Miami Downtown Development Authority. The after party, which is targeted at young professionals, transforms the gala into a darker, nightlife inspired event with a open bar sponsored by Bacardi, music by DJ Mark Leventhal, along with hors d’oeuvres and a dessert bar.
WHEN: Saturday, March 9 at 6:30 p.m., Big Bang begins at 10 p.m.
