More than 600 Stepped Into The Past to Support the Future
The Neanderthal Ball Was a Rockin’ Success
Guests partied like a caveman at the Orlando Science Center's Annual Neanderthal Ball on Saturday, November 5. They participated in a “diamond dig” for an authentic half-karat diamond, examined real fossils, and showed off the latest in “caveman couture.” It was a night of prehistoric fun in the dinosaur exhibit and raised $100,000 for the Science Center’s mission to inspire science learning for life.
Not only was the ball filled with fun activities, upscale dining was provided by Stonewood Grill with beverages, including Olive Garden’s fine wines and Orlando Brewing Company’s artisan beers. New event partner Absolut vodka offered a martini bar to move our theme into the Ice Age with a themed area inside the Science Center’s astronomy exhibit.
The Neanderthal Ball is presented by Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children. The event continues to serve as one of the Science Center’s biggest friend-raisers of the year.
