The Diamond Constellation Ball to benefit the South Florida Science Museum

The South Florida Science Museum’s upcoming Diamond Constellation Ball will be held in the Grand Ballroom of the Mar-a-Lago Club on January 15, 2005. Chairpersons Catherine Adler, Nancy Carter and Susan Keenan promise this year’s ball to be the most spectacular Science Museum event to date.

Graff, the evening’s Grand Corporate Benefactor, has donated a Classic Graff Bull’s-eye All White Diamond Earring set for live auction that evening. Other events include a drawing for wonderful prizes from David Goodman Furs, Louis Vuitton, Valentino, Giorgio Armani and more. The Special Event Chairpersons Frances Fisher and Joan Vogel have worked hard to plan a special pre-event reception and events in addition to the evening highlights.

Big Dipper Patrons include Mr. and Mrs. Alvin Brown and Mr. and Mrs. Lee Munder, and the Eleanor Patterson Reeves Foundation is the event’s Shining Star patron. Heavenly Bodies Patrons include Mr. and Mrs. Frederick Adler, Mr. and Mrs. Donald Carter, Ms. Jennifer C. Carter, Mr. and Mrs. Michael Falk, Mr. and Mrs. Allan Ferrin, Mr. and Mrs. Jeffrey Fisher, Mr. and Mrs. James Keenan, Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Meyer, Mr. and Mrs. Walter Raquet, Mr. and Mrs. Jack C. Taylor, Mr. and Mrs. Leo Vecellio, Jr., and Wachovia Wealth Management. Constellation Patrons include Mr. Seymour Fleisher, Mr. and Mrs. Bruce Gendelman, Mr. and Mrs. Martin Gruss, Mr. and Mrs. Howard Kessler, Mr. and Mrs. Sidney Kohl, Lydian Bank & Trust, and Mr. and Mrs. Kurt Sylvia.

“We are so grateful for the generosity of the community this year,” Carter said. “It is obvious that everyone understands the importance of science education for our children’s future. The Museum is an important fixture in our community that deserves the highest level of support.”

The evening begins at 7:00 p.m. with Cocktails and a magnificent display of Graff jewels. Dinner and Dancing with entertainment provided by Bruce Green’s City Lights start at 8:00 p.m.

The South Florida Science Museum has provided science education and entertainment for 44 years in Palm Beach County. Founded by the Junior League in 1959, the Museum opened as a children’s discovery center and natural history Museum in 1961. A few years later, Buzz Aldrin cut the ribbon on the Aldrin Planetarium. The Museum expanded again in 1977, adding additional classrooms to keep pace with the growing community. The current Museum now provides formal science classes to over 60,000 students a year, including portable outreach programs.

Recent expansions include an authentic Egypt Gallery, science-themed mini-golf course and expanded outdoor science trail. Interactive exhibits and permanent displays like the McGinty Aquariums and Florida natural history collections complete the experience to the Museum.

The Marvin and Elsie Dekelboum Foundation pledged a $10 million challenge grant in 2001, to help build a state-of-the-art science center in Lake Lytal Park. The Museum is currently working on a Capital Campaign to complete the $42 million project.

Proceeds from the Diamond Constellation Ball will support the Museum’s continuing educational programs and science enrichment projects. Patron opportunities begin at $2,500 and individual tickets are $550 per person.
