The Phillip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science and its Board of Trustees invite you to the 3rd Annual Celebration of Science on Saturday, May 4, 2019 from 7:00 p.m. to midnight. The museum’s largest fundraiser of the year will celebrate its second anniversary in Downtown Miami.
This year’s gala theme, The Science of the Senses, will take guests on a sensory journey through the museum’s Aquarium and unique exhibitions with a roving dining and entertainment experience designed to stimulate their sense of wonder. Performances by student groups of the Frost School of Music, curated by Dean Shelton Berg of the Frost School of Music, will set a lively tenor, with diverse ensembles performing jazz, opera and symphonic sounds. Interactive science experiments, animal encounters, dazzling visual displays, olfactory discoveries, and an inspired food and cocktail menu will delight and awaken each of the senses.
The museum will honor Dr. Eugene J. Sayfie with the 2019 Visionary Award, which recognizes and celebrates a commitment to the community through visionary leadership that enhances scientific, technological and/or educational excellence. Dr. Sayfie, a retired cardiologist and former associate professor of medicine and Medical Director of Executive Health at UHealth, revolutionized healthcare with his unique philosophy and personalized treatment approach. He also previously led a comprehensive care facility at UHealth, The Eugene J. Sayfie, M.D., Pavilion for Excellence in Patient Care. Last year, the museum honored Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos A. Gimenez with the 2018 Visionary Award.
Proceeds from the 3rd Annual Celebration of Science support the museum’s exhibitions and programs.
