The Boonshoft Museum of Discovery proudly announces this year’s annual fundraiser,
the Boonshoft EcoBash - A Fresh Air Affair, to be held on Saturday, August 28, 2021,
from 7:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m.
The Boonshoft Bash is always an exciting, black-tie optional, one-night-only affair that
gives patrons a chance to fund science education throughout the coming year.
The Bash theme this year is ecofriendly, and the Museum invites guests to join us in our
commitment to become more aware of our responsibility for stewardship of the Earth. We
have made conscientious efforts in reducing our use of plastics, replacing lightbulbs with LED,
turning off lights, adding composting for zoo waste, and planting raised bed gardens
to grow fresh vegetables for our zoo animals. We are also increasing our recycling efforts,
and we are seeking to add an environmentally friendly café! The café will offer healthy and quick
food options along with STEM-oriented educational programming.
Celebrate the reopening and exciting future of this amazing Dayton learning center that offers
STEM education for all ages.
The Boonshoft is also home to an incredible collection of historical and live (animal) collections.
Live music will be provided by the popular band Velvet Crush!
