Innovation Celebration

Innovation Celebration

Friday, September 13, 2019
6pm | RMSC Strasenburgh Planetarium

For 2019, the RMSC’s annual Innovation Celebration gala will offer guests a chance to support the museum’s kaleidoscope of learning opportunities, its proliferation of STEM education, and the future of optics. Join us as we celebrate a mission that colors our community with inspiration for curious minds of every generation. #ColorYourselfCurious 

Our festivities will begin at 6pm with valet parking offered at the entrance of the Strasenburgh Planetarium. We want you to be comfortable, so this event will be black-tie optional. But, be sure to bring your dancing shoes because we'll be moving and grooving to the music of Uptown Groove. We're excited to welcome Joe Lomonaco, co-host of the 5 O’clock News Hour on NewsRadio WHAM 1180 as our MC for the evening!

To purchase tickets (and raffle tickets for our Wine Pull), follow the link below. Stay tuned for more exciting event details to come!
