Discovery Cube Annual Gala

September 23, 2017 @ 5:00 pm

Age Group: Adults

Private Event - Registration Required

Beyond the Tide Gala

This year, we were honored to present the prestigious Arnold O. Beckman Award to Sandi and Dale Dykema. We were equally delighted to present the Spirit of Discovery Award to Janet Yamaguchi. Both honorees have provided their vision, guidance and supporting impact to Discovery Cube in countless ways over the years for which we are forever grateful.

Discovery Cube Orange County is committed to making a difference in the community, and with your support, we are continuing to make a meaningful impact for thousands of children to become tomorrow’s leaders. Our Annual Gala is a testament of the passion and enthusiasm our community has for science education. Proceeds raised at this event provide vital support to our Education Fund and strengthen our innovative programming, community outreach and onsite exhibits. So, our immense gratitude to our supporters and volunteers!
