Science World at TELUS World of Science hosted its largest annual fundraising event, Science of Cocktails, last week.
It’s an event that I look forward to every year. Here are my captures from the evening along with some more recap information.
This year, the event surpassed a cumulative milestone of $1.2 million raised for the Class Field Trip Bursary Program since the fundraiser began in 2016.
The Class Field Trip Bursary Program allows classes from underserved schools to visit Science World by covering 50-100% of their admission and transportation.
A sell-out event five years running, the full sensory experience allowed guests to engage with the city’s most talented bartenders who showcased the connection between ingredients, technique and science at more than 35 cocktail stations.
Along with expertly crafted beverages presented by award-winning bartenders, attendees were also treated to tasty food pairings created by acclaimed local restaurant venues and caterers.
Guests were enthralled by the flaming science activities and marveled at Science World programming including the new Reuben’s Tube, where sound waves create spectacular columns of flames.
All proceeds from Science of Cocktails, including ticket sales, 50/50, coat check, and silent auction funds, go to support the Class Field Trip Bursary Program, which will allow over 9,000 kids from underserved schools to visit the geodesic dome in 2020/2021 by covering their entry and school bus fee.
In addition to the funds raised, year over year dedicated event teams, bartenders, and chefs volunteer their time and efforts to make this event successful.
By the end of this school year, over 30,000 kids will have benefitted from funds raised in the five years Science of Cocktails has been running.
