Museum Masquerade Benefit March 4 5:30pm Sponsor: Westmark Credit UnionThe IMNH is hosting a benefit dinner and auction March 4th at the Juniper Hills Country Club to raise funds for IMNH’s summer exhibit, Be the Dinosaur, showing May 13th – September 6th. Be the Dinosaur is a one of a kind exhibit that combines the two things every kid loves: dinosaurs and video games! This immersive exhibit literally lets you be the dinosaur, as you survive as a T-Rex or triceratops in the hot jungles of the late cretaceous.

The evening will begin at 5:30pm with a Mardi Gras social hour with music by the local jazz group Rail City Jazz, a no host bar, fundraising games, and a silent auction that will continue throughout the evening.

Director of the museum, Dr. Leif Tapanila, will give opening remarks and announce  the 2nd Natural History Hero Award recipient followed by dinner and a live auction with Prime Time Auctions. The night will end with music by DJ Adrian and DJ K-Smooth from LP&H Entertainment and dancing.

Tickets are $50.00 per person, or a table for 10 people may be purchased for $450.00.

The IMNH is currently looking for sponsorship for this exciting exhibit. A company sponsorship will receive a table for 10 at the event and advertising benefits that follow the level of sponsorship. The IMNH is also seeking auction items. If you are interested in sponsoring, please contact the IMNH at (208) 282-3168.

We would like to thank our major sponsors: Westmark Credit Union and Sutton Family Dentistry.
