CRWA honored the Museum of Science at our Champions of the Charles gala on Thursday, November 2nd. The gala, held at the Museum of Science, raised funds to continue CRWA’s ongoing work monitoring and protecting the Charles River.
We honored the Museum of Science with the prestigious Champion of the Charles award for its dedication to science education and for establishing the new Yawkey Gallery on the Charles River.
Bob Zimmerman, CRWA's Executive Director, presented the 3D printed award to the Museum of Science. “CRWA’s Champion of the Charles award recognizes the Museum of Science for its commitment to excellent science education. The new Charles River gallery echoes CRWA’s approach to science and engineering and gives Museum visitors the chance to explore the Charles River through the eyes of a scientist or engineer,” said Bob Zimmerman.
More than 200 guests explored the Museum of Science and celebrated an evening of science while dining on incredible food and drink at the gala, the biggest Champions of the Charles to date. Janet Wu, TV journalist and adjunct professor at Emerson College, emceed the event. Dessert was served in the new Yawkey Gallery on the Charles River as guests explored the exhibit and learned more about the Charles River.
During the Fund-A-Cause portion of the evening, guests bid to help fund CRWA's field science, internships, blue cities and education programs. We deeply appreciate the generousity of everyone who donated.
