Sci-Quest’s Mad Scientist Bash = Epic Date Night

If your child has taken a camp at Sci-Quest, or you’ve attended one of their numerous special events, then grab your friends, dance the night away, eat amazing food, bid on those awesome silent auction items, and most importantly, support your local science center!

If you’re a local parent and faithful follower of Rocket City Mom, hopefully you’re familiar with Sci-Quest, Hands-on Science Center and all its programs and events for children and families. BUT did you also know Sci-Quest hosts one of the biggest and best adult parties in Huntsville? It also has a pretty cool name: Mad Scientist Bash.

So what makes this event so unique? It is Sci-Quest’s premier adult fundraiser, happening later this month on Saturday, October 17. We all know there are numerous black tie galas and formal dinners in town, but I promise, this event is NOT one of them. The Mad Scientist Bash is a laid-back, fun party with great people, food, drinks, and, entertainment.

Mad Scientist Bash

Guests will enjoy the following:

  • Plenty of delicious food from New Orleans Lunchbox – their bread pudding with whisky sauce is TO DIE FOR (it’ll be at the Bash!).
  • Local craft beer from Yellowhammer Brewing.
  • A digital light show from LED-Orange – the same guys that do all the amazing light shows in downtown Huntsville.
  • A HUGE silent auction with everything from restaurant gift cards, jewelry, pet items, entertainment, hotel stays, and much more.
  • Live music from The Crackerjacks – a cool local rockabilly band.
  • A new signature drink mixed and served by Prichard’s Distillery in Tennessee.

Plus The Valley’s CW will have the official Flash and Green Arrow costumes from the hit TV shows for guests to take pictures with. Sadly, actors Stephen Amell and Grant Gustin are not included. Guests are encouraged to wear their lab coats or Halloween costumes.

Do it For Charity

If all of that doesn’t convince you to make a date for October 17, then maybe this will. The Mad Scientist Bash is Sci-Quest’s major fundraising event of the year. Sci-Quest is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit and in order for them to keep providing all the quality educational programs for your children like Summer Camps, robotics teams, Sprouting Scientists, outreach programs, Expanding Your Horizons, Home School Science, etc. they need financial support from the community. Sci-Quest has grand plans to grow and really become a state-of-the-art community Science Center, but they cannot do it alone.

So if your child has taken a camp at Sci-Quest, or you’ve attended one of their numerous special events, then grab your friends, dance the night away, eat amazing food, bid on those awesome silent auction items, and most importantly, support your local science center!
