The Greensboro Science Center’s (GSC) annual gala, See to Believe, sponsored by First Bank, will take place on Friday, September 20 from 7:00 p.m. – 11:00 p.m. Each year, See to Believe is uniquely themed to pay homage to the GSC’s distinct experiences, exhibits and milestones.
Back by popular demand, gala guests will enjoy a variety of interactive games, including Giant Jenga, Pacific Plinko and Flaming-O Ring-O. Party goers will have the opportunity to purchase raffle tickets for a chance to win memorable experiences designed to make dreams come alive – from a private dinner in the aquarium to animal feeding opportunities.
Attendees will be invited to dance the night away with high-energy dance band Fantasy and mingle in the aquarium to the soothing sounds of steel drums. Heavy hors d’oeuvres from Pepper Moon Catering, as well as a variety of premium beer, wine, champagne, and non-alcoholic beverages, will be available for guests to enjoy as they roam, discover and celebrate.
This year, gala attendees can support the GSC’s zoo expansion, Revolution Ridge, and help bring pygmy hippos to the GSC – and North Carolina – for the first time via the GSC’s “Fund the Need” effort. The pygmy hippopotamus is an endangered species with less than 2,500 mature individuals left in the wild, according to the International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources. The GSC believes it is critical to participate in the Association of Zoos & Aquariums Species Survival Plan® for this species. Gifts given during “Fund the Need” will help in many ways, including building brand new exhibits and covering travel costs for new species.
See to Believe tickets and sponsorships start at $90 and are available online at greensboroscience.org/seetobelieve. Attendees must be age 21 or older.
