2017 Annual Auction & Benefit Dinner: Adventures in Candy Land

Saturday, November 4

Its nearly time for our annual spaghetti dinner and silent auction! This event is the largest, single fundraising event that helps us create new displays and continue with programming that brings quality, hands-on science to the community.

We have an extra sweet treat in store for auction goers this year- our 2017 Annual Auction and Benefit Dinner theme will be Candy Land! This year’s auction will feature all of the baskets, drawing, skits, and antics of years past with a sugary twist. Last year’s auction proved to be our most successful to date, with tickets selling out and with $12,000 raised in funds to help Akron Fossils & Science Center continue providing quality hands-on science education for the Akron/Copley community.

We hope you will join us on at Rittman United Methodist Church (located at 211 N Metzger Ave, Rittman OH) November 4th to have fun and raise funds to support another year of local, hands-on science education. Doors open at 4:30pm!

Be sure to reserve tickets today for you and your family to join us on an Adventure in Candy Land!

Its once again time for our annual Auction and Benefit Dinner! This year on November 05, 2016, we will be reprising our fun "CLUE" Mystery Night theme which generated the center's most successful auction to date in 2015.

This benefit is the largest single fundraising even that helps us create new displays and continue with programming that brings quality, hands-on science education to the community!
