Thanks for being groovy!

We would like to send out a big THANK YOU to all that attended the Clark Planetarium We’re Going to Light up the Dark Side of the Moon Fundraising Gala.   This year’s event was a great success thanks to the generosity of our donors, guests and volunteers. 

IMG_3257Guest’s time traveled to the 1970’s to be entertained with go-go dancers, groovy decorations and great disco hits.  Restaurants from around Salt Lake gathered to indulge our guests with some of their most popular and decadent dishes.

Silent auction and opportunity boxes were filled with over 200 prizes from local businesses and community partners and the live auction featured spectacular opportunities for once-in-a-lifetime experiences.  We completed our evening with a trip down memory lane with Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon cosmic light show.  The party atmosphere and benevolence of all who attended made for a highly enjoyable and rewarding event.

IMG_3284We would like to extend a heartfelt thanks to all who helped make this event possible.  Your generosity is critically important to our ability to provide science education programs to the community.  We are very proud to announce that with your help, over $80,000 was raised to support the Clark Planetarium mission of creating presenting stimulating educational programs that share astronomy and space exploration in our community.

Please remember our sponsors when shopping for products and services.
