Solstice 2009: Puesta Del Sol
The Maryland Science Center will welcome the start of summer with its annual fundraising gala, Solstice 2009: Puesta Del Sol, on Saturday, June 20, 2009. As the sun goes down on Baltimore’s Inner Harbor, the museum will turn up the heat with Latin flare and flavor, live music by the internationally-acclaimed 18-piece band Jose Conde y Ola Fresca, and guests dressed to the nueves.
Revelers will enjoy creative Latin American cuisine and signature cocktails on the waterfront promenade of the museum, as they show off their best rumba, mambo, and salsa moves to inventive Latin fusion music performed by the award-winning band. The museum’s exhibition halls will also be open during the celebration for guests to enjoy interactive entertainment.
Tickets for Solstice 2009: Puesta Del Sol are $105 for members, $125 for non-members. Non-member guests will receive a three month mini-membership to the museum with ticket purchase.
Proceeds from Solstice 2009: Puesta Del Sol benefit the education and outreach programs of the Maryland Science Center.
Dress is upscale-casual. Valet parking will be provided.
