Bell Event a Ringing Success!

On November 7, 2019, more than 90 guests enjoyed an evening of information and conviviality at a fundraiser celebrating  Mia’s relationship with the Bell Museum of Natural History.

Docent-led tours were a hit, as were the three speakers: Ford Bell who spoke of his philanthropist grandfather, James Ford Bell, and architect David Dimond of Perkins + Will and Bell.  Bell Executive Director Denise Young entertained and educated Mia Friends about the museum’s history, collection, planetarium partnership and the complex, exciting story of the move from the old to spectacular new building.  

The Friends are grateful for the support of our guests and the evening’s sponsors: 

Melanie Nelson, Chas and Jeanne Scheiderer, Carol Poulson and Nick Hay, Katie and Steve Remole, Connie Sommers and Vantage Point Wealth Management.  Thanks go as well to the Fundraising Events Committee chaired by Beverly Hauschild-Baron and Mary Aamoth.
