Underwater Wonders at the Imaginarium Gala
March 13, 2014
One thing that all community leaders have in common: they get involved and serve. Jon Romine is proud of his involvement serving on the Board of Directors for the Imaginarium and Gala. Our company is proud of our work with the design and installation of their new site improvements. Our investment in the future success of our community is exactly the reason why we roll up our sleeves for places like the Imaginarium.
It’s also why we would like to invite you to spend an adult night of play, exploring the “Underwater Wonders” at the 2014 Imagine Gala on March 29th at 7:00pm benefiting the Imaginarium Science Center. The evening will feature live music, fabulous food and drinks, live and silent auctions and entertaining and educational displays. Funds raised will benefit future programs and exhibits for the Imaginarium. Tickets can be purchased for $75 by calling 239.321.7420 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Tickets will be $100 if purchased after March 22nd. Come and enjoy the FUN for a great cause! Read More…
