(WEST PALM BEACH) –The South Florida Science Museum kicked it into high gear with their Fast Cars and Fashion event hosted by Frances and Jeffrey Fisher. Nearly 200 guests gathered recently to hear about exciting plans for the upcoming season, including the March 30th, 2012 gala What Lies Beneath: An Evening of Nautical Mystery and Adventure. Guests at the special reception enjoyed beautiful fashions presented by Saks Fifth Avenue, Palm Beach while surrounded by vintage and exotic cars.

“This is such an exciting time for the Museum,” said Frances Fisher, board member and honorary chair for the 2012 Gala. “We are well poised for great things as we look forward to the next 50 years for this well-loved institution.”

Oceanographer and deep sea-explorer, Dr. Robert Ballard will be the featured presenter at the Museum’s Gala to be held in the Circle Ballroom at The Breakers, Palm Beach. The elegant evening will feature a cocktail reception and dinner followed by Ballard’s special presentation discussing undersea explorations and his discovery of the RMS Titanic.

Honorary chairs for the 2012 Gala are Frances Fisher, Matthew Lorentzen and John Niblack. Host Committee Chairmen are Liz and Matthew Fifield, Allison and Stuart Haft, Afsy and Carter Pottash, and Heath Randolph.

Sponsors for the Gala include: Grand Benefactor PNC Wealth Management along with Corporate Sponsors Florida Power and Light, Betteridge and Saks Fifth Avenue, Palm Beach.

Looking toward its next 50 years of science in the community, the South Florida Science Museum is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing curious minds of all ages with an entertaining and educational journey through science and technology. Founded in 1961 by the Junior League of the Palm Beaches, the Museum features more than 50 hands-on exhibits, a digital planetarium, freshwater and saltwater aquariums, as well as natural history exhibitions. Each year the Museum welcomes more than 125,000 visitors and reaches more than 55,000 students through workshops at the Museum and outreach programs to local schools.

“Our Museum makes lasting memories and is well loved by all who live here. We’ve come a long way in the last 50 years,” said Lew Crampton, South Florida Science Museum CEO. “Now it’s time for us to step purposefully into our second 50 years by serving the public and educating our children to become the scientists and engineers of tomorrow. It’s time for us to grow from a good museum into the great institution this county and our children and families deserve.”

Tickets to What Lies Beneath: An Evening of Nautical Mystery and Adventure are $500 per person. Sponsorship opportunities are available. For more information about the South Florida Science Museum or the 2012 Gala, please contact Marcy Hoffman at
