Thanks for fundraiser

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, Rosa’s Italian Restaurant, Alphy’s Basque Chateau, Bill’s Place, Fin’s Seafood Restaurant, Lido, Mongo’s Saloon , Novo and Doc Burnstein’s. 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 year’s auction eclipsed last year’s 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.
