The Western Science Center’s Annual Fundraiser Celebrates “The Science of the Ice Age”

HEMET – The Western Science Center is pleased to announce its annual fundraiser, Science Under the Stars, taking place on September 9, 2017 at 5:00 PM. This year’s theme is “The Science of the Ice Age.”

Considered one of the greatest parties in the Inland Empire, Science Under the Stars takes place on the museum’s beautiful outdoor piazza. Guest will enjoy a delicious catered dinner, open bar, and the chance to explore the museum’s exhibits. Guests will also have the opportunity to take home unique auction items, which include vacation getaways, fossil replicas, and a signed print of artwork featured in the museum’s new exhibit Valley of the Mastodons.

This year’s guest speaker is paleontologist Eric Scott of Cogstone Resource Management, who assisted with the excavation of Diamond Valley Lake. The night will be MC’d by radio personality Bob Madden of local station 101.3 The Mix. Music will be provided by classic rock band One 2 Many, and guests are encouraged to dance the night away!

Western Science Center is a private 501(c)(3) nonprofit; all proceeds from Science Under the Stars support the Western Science Center and its programs. Currently in its eleventh year of operation, the museum continues its mission to discover the past, explore the present, and promote a sustainable future. Science Under the Stars is a vital component of the Western Science Center’s fundraising goals as the museum seeks to provide educational opportunities to the Inland Empire at large.

“The Western Science Center is at the forefront of research and education about the Inland Empire’s natural history,” says Dr. Alton Dooley, the Western Science Center’s Executive Director. “Community support, including Science Under the Stars is what enables us to do this innovative work.”
