The Museum of Discovery and Science (MODS) hosted its 25th Annual Bank of America Wine, Spirits and Culinary Celebration and the event raised funds to support the Museum’s accessibility and inclusivity initiatives. The evening was presented by Bank of America and featured more than 60 South Florida restaurants, fine wines, spirits and craft beers enjoyed by approximately 1,600 guests. Since its inception 25 years ago, this event has raised more than $5 million. All proceeds support the Museum’s mission of connecting people to inspiring science.
MODS strongly believes that every individual, regardless of financial means, should be able to visit the Museum. The Opening Doors Initiative enables individuals, families and educational groups better access to the Museum and its resources. This evening helped underwrite the Museum’s Opening Doors initiatives. These inclusivity and accessibility programs have a direct impact on the South Florida community, especially children. “For 25 years, we have celebrated alongside The Museum of Discovery & Science as part of a shared mission to inspire learning,” said Lori Chevy, president, Bank of America Fort Lauderdale. “The funds raised during this event will provide underserved members of our Broward County community with an opportunity to experience MODS through educational programs, accommodations and discounts.” Bank of America is one of the world’s leading financial institutions, serving individual consumers, small and middle-market businesses and large corporations with a full range of banking, investing, asset management and other financial and risk management products and services.
