They will also tour the new Mangurian Foundation Lifelong Learning Center and the Keller Science Theater.
The festivities will begin at 6:00 p.m. with the Wells Fargo Cocktail Reception that includes an open bar generously provided by Southern Wine & Spirits, accompanied by a unique and impressive Silent Auction. After cocktails, guests will enjoy an elegant dinner and a live auction where bidders can vie for prizes of ultimate luxury. Surprise vignettes will punctuate the evening and delight guests to ensure an unforgettable evening. A rockin’ dance party will cap off the evening. Over 600 guests will be in attendance representing over 50 of the leading South Florida corporations, foundations and individual Museum supporters.
