 See the Museum in a whole new light as you experience an evening of fun and excitement at the 2015 Boonshoft Bash! Enjoy a reception with hors d'oeuvres and signature drinks at the open bar before heading to the edges of the universe – or at least the Museum! – as you dine in one of five astronomy-themed venues. Guests will be served a full course of learning and entertainment as they explore our Sun and Moon, discover the stories of Constellations that fill our night sky, traverse the Solar System to see all eight planets, and even hitch a ride on a Comet – before dancing the night away at the not-to-be-missed Pity Party for Pluto.

New for 2015 – Spend the evening dancing among the shimmering stars of the universe, then get your chance to take home something just as dazzling—a unique piece of beautiful jewelry provided by our friends at Jaffe Jewelers.


Not only will the winner be taking home something stunning, each couple attending the Boonshoft Bash will receive a $100 Gift Certificate to Jaffe Jewelers—because our wonderful guests all deserve a chance to sparkle like the stars!
