The Museum of Discovery and Science (MODS) will host An Evening in the South Pacific Gala presented by PNC Bank on Saturday, October 20, 2018. Guests will enjoy a formal South Pacific themed evening complete with dining and dancing at the Museum located at 401 SW Second Street in Fort Lauderdale.

During the event, MODS will honor Ronald L. Book with the 2018 Community Leadership Award for his commitment to the Museum and community at large. The event will host 450 guests who will experience an evening complete with a high-energy cocktail reception, silent auction and glamorous dinner and wine pairing. The essence of the South Pacific will also come alive with performances by Polynesian Proud Productions. Later in the evening, the crowd will dance the night away to live music by Private Stock and compete for luxurious live auction items.

The evening’s host, Kavita Channe, will guide the crowd through the night’s festivities and live auction, including impressive items such as a one-week stay in a private residence at the Four Seasons Costa Rica and a one-week stay at a South African Safari at Thulani Private Lodge. Of course, local auction items of note include Hamilton tickets, a Florida Panthers VIP Experience and a Goodyear Blimp Experience.

All proceeds will benefit the Museum’s Opening Doors program, a push to facilitate and improve accessibility to education, experiential pathways and resources in families and educational groups that might otherwise not be able to do so.
