The Jupiter Ball 2012 is a benefit gala for Morehead Planetarium and Science Center, supporting science education for North Carolina schoolchildren.
Annually, more than 75,000 students in grades K-12 receive high-quality science education experiences through Morehead field trips and outreach visits. We strive to inspire the next generation of young scientists with cutting-edge content. We want students to discover how science impacts their lives and to imagine themselves in science careers.
Proceeds from the Jupiter Ball will be used to fund need-based scholarships for children who otherwise would not be able to afford the science education opportunities that Morehead has to offer. In the past 18 months, the Jupiter Ball Scholarship Program has made it possible for more than 8,500 schoolchildren from economically distressed schools to experience our top-notch programs.
The 2012 Jupiter Ball will be held Friday, Nov. 9. This annual black-tie gala, a Chapel Hill tradition, offers a champagne reception, catered dinner, musical entertainment, dancing to a live band, and stargazing. We are delighted to honor Dr. Betsy Bennett, director of the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences, as our special guest.
Please join us for this fun and festive evening!
