The Museum of Innovation and Science (miSci) Board of Trustees will host a virtual fundraising event titled “Jane Golub: Our Inspiration,” honoring longtime patron, trustee, and champion for the museum Jane Golub, from 6 to 7 p.m. Wednesday (March 31).

Board Chair Neil Golub will serve as honorary chair of the online event.

The benefit will be hosted by three-time Emmy Award-winner Liz Bishop. Guest speakers include Neil Golub, miSci President Gina C. Gould, Union College President David Harris, Board Vice President  Michelle Bennett, Congressman Paul Tonko, Assemblyman Angelo Santabarbara, two-time Academy Award-winning set decorator Nancy Haigh, Proctors CEO Philip Morris, and others.

Proceeds from the event go to support the museum’s exhibits and events, including the upcoming permanent installation of Design Zone, an interactive exploration of engineering design that is slated to go on view in January 2022.

The exhibit will be the inaugural presentation in the newly named Jane Golub Gallery.

Donations also support the Jane Golub STEM Fund that provides free access for underserved schools to miSci’s educational programming.
