California Science Center Discovery Ball

Leroy Hamilton

On March 15, 2019 the California Science Center Foundation and more than 800 guests celebrated the 21st Annual Discovery Ball featuring the world premiere of Dogs! A Science Tail, a traveling exhibition developed by the California Science Center with support from Annenberg Foundation and Wallis Annenberg PetSpace. PetSmart Charities is sponsoring the national tour.

Thanks to the leadership of Discovery Ball Honorary Chair, Wallis Annenberg and Co-Chairs Dan Beckerman of AEG and John DeSimone of Herbalife Nutrition and the Discovery Ball Committee, the event raised more than $2 million! Thank you to all of our generous sponsors!

The mission of the California Science Center is to stimulate curiosity and inspire science learning in everyone by creating fun, memorable experiences. Proceeds from the Discovery Ball help sustain the model education programs and hands-on exhibits that make the Science Center a world-class educational resource and family destination, with free general admission that allows us to serve a diverse audience of 37 million guests and counting.

Save the date for the 22nd Annual Discovery Ball on Saturday, March 7, 2020 featuring THE ART OF THE BRICK exhibition at the California Science Center. For more information or to be added to the Discovery Ball mailing list, contact the Development Office at (213) 744-7494 or
