Lost Egypt Gala




                The Great Lakes Science Center combined its new Egyptian exhibit with a fundraiser. The “Lost Egypt Gala” immersed 200 guests into the ancient secrets and modern science of the fascinating culture. Dr. John Nolan, Associate Director of Ancient Egypt Research Associates, served as special guest, giving a tour of the exhibit to VIPs at the start of the evening.
    Arriving guests were greeted by belly dancers, live camels and the sound of Egyptian music. Through the social hour, they toured the exhibit, took photos, and asked questions. The exhibit invites interaction from guests of all ages.
    Aramark catering excelled with the Egyptian-themed dinner. Elaborate gold-rimmed goblets and extravagant place settings eliminated the need for centerpieces. The entrée of braised North African chicken was flavored with African spices coriander, cumin and cinnamon and dates and almonds. Dr. Nolan made a presentation in which the science of Archeology was understandable to the guests. Following dinner, guests could return to the exhibit, see a screening of the film “Mummies: Secrets of the Pharaohs,” participate in a trivia game or have a sneak peek of the new NASA Glenn Galleries. The event raised $100,000 for the Science Center. STORY AND PHOTOGRAPHS BY ART THOMAS
