23rd Annual Discovery Ball
May 7, 2022
On May 7, 2022, nearly 600 guests joined the California Science Center Foundation in celebration at the 23rd Annual Discovery Ball benefit featuring the world premiere of Angkor: The Lost Empire of Cambodia — an international touring exhibition featuring over 120 ancient artifacts, half of which are on tour for the first time. With the leadership of our Discovery Ball Co-Chairs Nanci Nishimura of Cotchett, Pitre & McCarthy and John Sinnema of U.S. Bank, the gala raised nearly $1.6 million in support of science learning for everyone!
Thanks to our generous supporters, proceeds from the Discovery Ball help sustain the hands-on exhibits, programs and operations that make the California Science Center a world-class educational resource and family destination.
The Discovery Ball is the California Science Center Foundation’s signature annual benefit event. The black-tie gala has been described as “a virtual who’s who of the Los Angeles business community” by the Los Angeles Business Journal. It consistently places in the top 5 annually in the benefits category of the Top 100 Events in Southern California by BizBash Magazine and recently won Special Events Magazine’s 2020 Gala Award for Best Fundraising Event.
