The Fossil Ball

San Diego Museum of Natural History March 9, 2013



Published:

Nearly 200 guests donned exotic prints and flocked to The Nat for its second annual Fossil Ball, celebrating the museum’s research collection of 7.3 million specimens. A costumed snake charmer greeted patrons and posed for pictures, in keeping with the vintage carnival theme of Dr. Entomo’s Palace of Exotic Wonders, on exhibit through June 2 at the museum. Reception highlights featured table décor with 5-foot-tall lantern-abras and catering by The Wild Thyme Company, 3E Wines, and CRG mixologists, plus paperweight party favors courtesy of glass artist Robin Lehman. The event raised about $120,000.
