Science in the City Gala 2017
May 18, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm| $135
Join Chicago Council on Science and Technology for Science in the City, our 7th Annual Fundraising Gala!
Help C2ST foster connections across various industries as we celebrate our 10 Year Anniversary at this year’s gala. There will be an opportunity for supporters to celebrate science and enjoy interactive sports museum exhibits. Meet researchers and mingle with area business leaders and young professionals while you enjoy food and drinks. This fundraiser will provide C2ST with much-needed financial resources to help support its mission.
The evening includes a cocktail reception with heavy hors d’oeuvres, silent auction and raffle, a chance to mingle with business and scientific leaders and young professionals, all while enjoying the sports museum exhibits and beautiful skyline.
The recipients of Chicago Council on Science and Technology’s “Advancing the Public Understanding of Science & Technology Award” will be fêted at the gala event. This year, we will be recognizing two awardees, in both the ‘Lifetime Achievement’ and ‘Accomplished Young Professional’ categories. C2ST created this award in 2012 to honor individuals who share in the passion and mission of the organization—to increase the awareness of the great R&D taking place in our region.
