Online Fundraiser: Doctors vs. Doctorates

Sunday, Aug. 30  |  7 p.m.

Join us for a virtual trivia showdown of “Doctors vs Doctorates”! Local celebrity physicians and professors will face off in an effort to raise much needed funds for Discovery Center. Tickets are $25 and sponsorships are a wonderful way to support our local children’s museum all while promoting your business. 100% of the proceeds will be used to support our efforts as we reopen our doors to the community. As the museum has been closed these past few months, never has your support been more important. Tickets & info»
