25th Annual Snooty’s Gala

During the 25th Annual Snooty’s Gala, we honored the legacy of our beloved Snooty and, thanks to the continued support and generosity of our Corporate Partners, event Sponsors and attendees, all proceeds from the event’s Silent Auction and Raffle benefited the Museum’s Manatee Rehabilitation Program. This program has provided invaluable knowledge and insights into caring for manatees and helping them return to their natural habitats.

The selection of this year’s theme – “elements” – reflected the notion the five core scientific elements: earth, air, fire, water and ether. Just as all of these elements are found in our universe, they are also found here at the Museum – in the Collections, the Parker Manatee Rehabilitation Aquarium, the Bishop Planetarium and in the outdoor Spanish Courtyard. This is the case today and will be true to an even greater extent with all the exciting plans the Museum has for the future.
