The Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science will host its stellar 13th Annual Galaxy Gala: Aqua Lumiere on Saturday, April 18, at Hilton Miami Downtown. Since its inception, the Galaxy Gala has helped raise funds for and highlight the development of the new Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science, a world-class, state-of-the-art facility under construction in downtown Miami’s Museum Park. We spoke with this year’s Galaxy Gala co-chair, Shelly Dimitrijevic, about why its important to attend and support the new Museum. To attend the Galaxy Gala, click here and purchase tickets.
My experience as co-chair of this year’s Galaxy Gala has been extremely rewarding. It is a privilege to be part of such a wonderful and dedicated steering committee and to work alongside people like Museum President & CEO Gillian Thomas, whose passion and commitment to the Museum is immeasurable, as well as lead gala coordinator Ruth Robinson, who has always gone above and beyond of what is asked of her to ensure that every minute, every detail of this very important event will be executed to perfection. Thanks to Trish Bell’s ability to bring people together, I have also had the opportunity to get to know my fellow co-chair Jennifer Montoya whose energy and persistence never ceases to amaze me.
This is the final gala before the much-anticipated grand opening of the new Museum in 2016 and it is a great opportunity to build excitement for continued support of the Museum. There are too many exciting elements to narrow it down…lights, water, a GRAMMY nominated performance, interactive art, John Morales who forecasts a beautiful evening, and the list goes on….
Getting involved with the Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science is a great way to commit to a shared goal and it is a wonderful way to create new friendships and strengthen existing relationships. Moreover, it strengthens your ties to the community and broadens your support network and that of the Museum. Why wouldn’t people support such an amazing addition to the community?
I hope to see you at the 13th Annual Galaxy Gala! It will be a night we will never forget.
