Intermountain Centers held its Stars Around Us fundraising event on May 3, 2018. More than 125 people attended the event which was held at the UA's Flandrau Planetarium.
The evening featured a presentation by Dr. Dante Lauretta, professor of planetary science and cosmochemistry at the University of Arizona's Lunar and Planetary Laboratory and the principal investigator on NASA's OSIRIS-REx mission.
The evening was capped off with a live auction featuring once-in-a-lifetime experiences:
Through the generosity of those making direct donations and those that bid on the auction items, we were able to raise just over $60,000 at the event.
The money raised at the event will become part of our capital campaign aimed at purchasing a new building for the Intermountain Academy.
