Enjoy an evening of food, cocktails and behind the scenes experiences at a fundraiser benefitting the Boonshoft Museum of Discovery.

EcoBASH - A Fresh Air Affair will be held Saturday, Aug. 28 from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m.

“I’d like to personally invite you to help support us as the Boonshoft Museum of Discovery recovers from COVID-19 revenue loss,” Tracey Tomme, Boonshoft CEO, said in a release.

Proceeds from EcoBASH, the museum’s signature fundraiser, benefit STEM education, outreach, and science-based initiatives year-round.

The theme of this year’s event is “eco-friendly.” The museum invites guests to join the museum in its commitment to become more aware of a responsibility for stewardship of the Earth.
