The ‘Royale’ treatment
On October 4, The Young Friends and Families of the South Florida Science Museum will join Palm Beach County’s young jet-setters to explore the far Egyptian lands at the group’s annual fundraising gala, “Nova Royale: Pharaoh’s Mystique.”
The event, which begins at 7 p.m., will turn The National Croquet Center in West Palm Beach into a modern day Pharaoh’s fantasy for an evening of dining and dancing in support of advancement of science education in Palm Beach County.
These young and hip science supporters, decked out in their best Cleopatra-esqe attire, will begin the evening with a lawn cocktail reception and the opportunity to bid on exclusive items in the silent auction. Items include: a wine tasting for ten from Store Wine Storage; Sunday brunch for 4 at Taboo Restaurant in Palm Beach; a foursome of golf at PGA National; a one-night stay at the Night Swan in New Smyrna Beach; a one-night stay at Hotel Biba in West Palm Beach; a bundle of restaurant gift certificates from Benihana, Leila, and participating Big Time Restaurant Group restaurants; boutique certificates and more. Guests will then move inside the jewel-themed ballroom to dance the night away.
Heather Greenhill and Virginia Oatley will chair the event, while Virginia Lang of Wild 95.5 and Jay Cashmere of WPTV Channel 5 will serve as honorary media chairs.
Funds raised at the event will go toward the comprehensive campaign for the new South Florida Science Museum.
