The Exploration Station recently held its Second Annual Chemistry of Cocktails Fundraiser, and we are grateful for the generosity of our community. We want to thank our restaurants and bartenders for their donations of time, talent and libations to our cocktail competition: F. McLintocks Saloon and Dining House, Sea-Venture, Rosas Italian Restaurant, Alphys Basque Chateau, Bills Place, Fins Seafood Restaurant, Lido, Mongos Saloon , Novo and Doc Burnsteins. Thanks also to our lead sponsor, California Fine Wire; media sponsors New Times and KCOY TV 12; and our community sponsors, J. Johnson , Rabobank and E.C. Loomis. The donors to our silent auction are too many to list in this letter, but we are very grateful to them as well. This years auction eclipsed last years by more than 100 percent.
Special thanks to the Eco-Rotary Club for their outstanding work in making our event 100 percent waste free.
We are fortunate to be located in such a warm, giving community and one that supports our efforts to enhance science education for our children and schools.
