Guests take in ‘OH! Zone’ gala at Fleet center

The Reuben H. Fleet Science Center’s OH! Zone fundraiser on March 14 raised a record $42,000 for its School Scholarship Program.

In 2001, the Fleet launched the School Scholarship Program to help more students take advantage of its educational resources. Last year, approximately 35,000 students and their teachers were able to experience the Fleet through the School Scholarship Program.

This was the eighth year for the event, which was chaired by Amee Alagiri and Lisa Schroeder.

Guests enjoyed a sustainable dinner provided by Wild Thyme Catering Co., cocktails, dancing, a casino night and a special sneak preview of the newest IMAX film, “Under the Sea,” which opens April 1.

Filmmakers Howard and Michelle Hall narrated the 10-minute clip before heading to Australia to promote the film.

This year’s “green themed” OH! Zone supported the use of science and technology to make the planet a green, environmentally sensitive place to live.
