Science Center tees up for events
Palm Beachers teed off for a good cause recently at the South Florida Science Center and Aquarium’s Conservation Cup Mini Golf Classic. Among the residents were: Page Lee Hufty, Ginny Helado, Nancy and Bob Wildrick, Kathleen and Lew Crampton. Town Councilman Lew Crampton is president and chief executive officer of the science center.
Designed by Gary Nicklaus and Jim Fazio, the center’s Conservation Course is set in a butterfly garden, an area that provides recreation benefits while educating visitors about Florida’s natural environment.
The minigolf classic was a preview of the Science Center’s Nine and Wine fundraiser set for Sept. 27 at the Par 3 course. Proceeds from these events benefit youth programs at the science center.
