Science of Cocktails: Vancouver’s Most Popular Cocktail Fundraiser is Back – April 27, 2023
Science World’s largest fundraising event, Science of Cocktails, is back on Thursday, April 27, following a three-year hiatus due to the pandemic. For one night only, the iconic dome will transform into the world’s largest cocktail laboratory. Get your tickets before they sell out to experience the science behind cocktails, enjoy delicious bites made by some of the city’s best chefs, and explore exhibitions with other 19+ adults. Tickets are on sale now at scienceworld.ca.
Proceeds from the sale of Science of Cocktails tickets support Science World’s Bursary Program, which provides free access to tens of thousands of people who may not otherwise be able to visit the dome. This includes students and teachers who attend under-resourced schools; refugees, newcomers, and immigrants to Canada; people living with autism, physical disabilities, and developmental disabilities; and those experiencing financial barriers. The Bursary Program also collaborates with many B.C. communities and organizations that are currently underrepresented in STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts & design, and math) fields, removing barriers to Science World for girls, LGBTQ2S+ learners, Indigenous peoples, and more. In 2022 alone, the program provided free access for over 30,000 individuals from across the province.
“We’re excited to be able to host Science of Cocktails this year, and I’m grateful for the hard work and collaboration from our team and community members to organize the fun-filled evening,” says Tracy Redies, President and CEO of Science World. “Our province and planet’s future depend on people from all backgrounds having access to and being excited about STEAM learning. Since its inception in 2016, Science of Cocktails has raised $1.2 million, facilitating access to Science World and its programs across British Columbia, and we look forward to being able to support more families and communities with this year’s proceeds.“
Eventgoers will have the chance to enjoy unique cocktails from 30 stations created and served by the city’s best, award-winning bartenders. Guests will also enjoy mouth-watering bites from locally renowned restaurants, chefs, and caterers. Alongside the enticing and delicious food and drink offerings, witness astounding science demonstrations, explore galleries and exhibitions, and mix and mingle with the nerdiest cool kids in town.
