(WEST PALM BEACH) –The South Florida Science Museum gala host committee had a scien-terrifc adventure going under the sea and roaming with the dinosaurs during a recent pre-event celebration for the upcoming March 30th, 2012 gala What Lies Beneath: An Evening of Nautical Mystery and Adventure.  Guests heard plans for the upcoming Gala at The Breakers featuring Dr. Robert Ballard, oceanographer and discoverer of the Titanic.

During the evening, guests and their children were treated to the first look at the Museum’s newest traveling exhibit, Dinosaur Attack, on display through May 13.  Curators Robert DePalma and Rudy Pascucci spoke to the group about the dinosaurs including the 70-million-year- old dinosaur bones on display.  The event also had guests petting sharks and touching undersea creatures in the aquarium as well as craft activities for the kids and a laser light show in the Museum’s planetarium.

Oceanographer and deep sea-explorer, Dr. Robert Ballard will be the featured presenter at the Museum’s Gala to be held in the Circle Dining Room 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. 

“Our committee has come up with an event that is not the usual fare for Palm Beach fundraisers,” said Lew Crampton, President and CEO of the South Florida Science Museum. “We’ve planned a truly remarkable evening with Robert Ballard, the world’s premier undersea explorer, intended to directly immerse our guests in the mysteries and legends of what lies beneath our magnificent oceans. No one does this better than Bob Ballard, and we’ll allow plenty of time for questions so all who attend will come away wiser and understand more about our Earth’s underwater world.”

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 Karly and Heath Randolph. 

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

Looking toward its next 50 years of science in the community, the South Florida Science Museum is kicking off expansion plans with an upcoming groundbreaking on April 5.  The non-profit organization continues to be 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.

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 561-370-7738, , or visit .
