    ROCHESTER, NY, October 5, 2021 – The Rochester Museum & Science Center’s (RMSC) annual Innovation Celebration gala is returning on October 15, 2021, at Woodcliff Hotel & Spa. 

    The Innovation Celebration is the largest fundraising event for the RMSC. All proceeds from the event will help further the RMSC’s mission to inspire a better future for all through curiosity, exploration, and participation in science, culture, and the natural world. 

    “Our unique offerings at the Museum, Planetarium, and Nature Center allows people to explore without boundaries, giving visitors the space to discover what truly interests them,” said Hillary Olson, President and CEO of the RMSC. “Support from our community through this event helps the RMSC’s important efforts to engage guests of all ages and backgrounds in immersive STEM opportunities and spark a passion for lifelong learning.”

    This year’s gala theme is An Adventure Back in Time and visitors will have the opportunity to explore the wonders of the Mesozoic Era. The gala theme teases at the RMSC’s upcoming featured exhibit, Expedition: Dinosaur, set to open on November 5, 2021.

    During the event, attendees can look forward to exciting science demonstrations, participating in a silent and premier auction, live music from the band Hall Pass, and an array of interactive, hands-on activities themed around the RMSC’s unique offerings.
