On March 23, 2018 the California Science Center Foundation and more than 900 guests celebrated the milestone 20th Anniversary Discovery Ball featuring KING TUT: TREASURES OF THE GOLDEN PHARAOH – the largest King Tut exhibition ever toured making its world premiere at the California Science Center. Under the leadership of Gala Co-Chairs Raul Anaya of Bank of America and Dennis Arriola of Sempra Energy and the Discovery Ball Committee the gala raised the best ever revenue topping $1.6 million!

Thank you to our generous supporters. Proceeds from the Discovery Ball help sustain the hands-on exhibits, programs and operations that make the California Science Center a world-class educational resource and family destination.
