Don’t Miss the Final Neanderthal Ball at Orlando Science Center Nov 5

Final Neanderthal Ball at Orlando Science Center Nov 5, 2016

On November 5, 2016, the Orlando Science Center will host its 10th and final Neanderthal Ball, the venue’s annual fundraiser.

This year’s theme is “Celebrate Our Evolution,” and guests are invited to celebrate 10 years of Neanderthal Ball and what it has helped achieve for Orlando Science Center.

The prehistoric-themed event, located in the Science Center’s DinoDigs exhibit, includes a night of dancing, dining, and a silent auction, which will feature over 75 unique packages to bid on.

During the event, guests will dance the evening away with live music from the local band Running with Scissors. They will also enjoy gourmet creations from Puff ‘N Stuff Event Catering, with drinks provided by Tito’s Vodka, a wine bar, and craft beer from Orlando Brewing Company.

The auction includes offerings from the Arnold Palmer Invitational, the Kennedy Space Center, unique experiences, and local restaurant packages. A diamond necklace and earring suite from Mayor’s Jewelers—valued at $5,000—is also set to be raffled off.

To get everyone in the spirit, guests are encouraged to showcase pops of print or wild animal patterns. Harriet Lake, one of Central Florida’s leading philanthropists, sponsors the Caveman Couture Contest with prizes awarded to those with the most chic “caveman couture.”


Tickets are $150 per person. OSC members can get tickets for $125. The event runs from 7pm to 10pm.

Proceeds from Neanderthal Ball will help fund educational programs at Orlando Science Center, plus support opportunities for youth and families to experience the Science Center regardless of income or educational background.
