A Timeless Affair at Fernbank Museum

ATLANTA, September 16, 2014 – Fernbank Museum of Natural History ­­­­­­­will host its annual black-tie fundraising gala, A Timeless Affair 2014: The Witching Hour on Saturday, October 4, 2014 from 7 p.m. to midnight. The evening will honor the dedicated support of Maria and Ralph de la Vega.

Event Chairs, Burch and Mark Hanson and Amanda and Jody Tucker, along with a stellar Planning Committee, are organizing a night of enchantment that includes live music from The Rupert’s Orchestra, a sunset cocktail hour, seated dinner with wine service and open bars, silent and live auctions, dancing and a private viewing of the fall exhibition Goose Bumps! The Science of Fear.

A Timeless Affair 2014: The Witching Hour draws inspiration from this incredible new special exhibition, which examines how the body and brain work together to respond to the universal emotion of fear. The Goose Bumps exhibit features a variety of exciting, scientific and risk-free activities, including falling backwards, mysterious boxes, sudden noises and other interactive ways to safely test why we have fears.

“It is truly a joy to be a part of such an influential organization that contributes so much to our community,” said event chair Burch Hanson. “We are so proud of this event, and we know that the guests at Timeless this year will have a fantastic time supporting their community.”

As always, this gala will provide Atlantans with the opportunity to have an amazing time, while also furthering Fernbank Museum’s mission to educate and inspire all ages through world-class cultural and scientific programming.

“We are so grateful to serve the community through Fernbank Museum,” said event chair Amanda Tucker. “It is our hope that you will come experience this special cornerstone of the Atlanta community during this special event.”

Patron levels begin at $1,600 and tables of 10 begin at $12,000. Individual tickets are $500. Learn more about this enchanted evening by visiting the website. For tickets, please contact Catherine Stolarski at 404.929.6376 or development@fernbankmuseum.org">
