DISCOVERY CUBE’S ANNUAL GALA 2020
A SINCERE THANK YOU MESSAGE TO OUR SUPPORTERS!
After months of debate it was with a heavy heart that, on behalf of your 2020 Gala Co-Chairs: Lori & Karl Kreutziger, Julie & Tom McDorman and Janet & Walkie Ray, we shared with you that the 2020 Discovery Cube Orange County Gala was cancelled.
We sincerely appreciate that our community includes us as one of its charities of choice through the Gala each year and with your help, WE DID IT!
Together, you gave nearly $450,000 for our “In Lieu of Gala Campaign” supporting Discovery Cube’s vital online science education programs and resources needed for our community during these unprecedented times. A truly remarkable outpouring of support from YOU, our STEM champions! On behalf of our Co-Chairs, Gala Committee, Board of Directors and the Discovery Cube Team, THANK YOU!
Your contributions will help us to reach nearly 100,000 Orange County students virtually, as we support our local school districts this school year alone. Through our NEW Discovery Cube Connect, we will also continue to provide free access to high-quality online educational content for ALL students regardless of their socioeconomic background, gender or race. On behalf of parents, teachers and of course “The KIDS”, we are grateful for the difference you have made not only for the Cube, but for the communities we serve! Because of you, more children will enthusiastically exclaim, “I am a scientist!”
Thank you for being “IN” for science education!
We are resilient, believe in the greater good, and look to science for encouragement, hope and the way forward – remembering that this is why we believe inspiring the next generation of scientists and leaders is so critical. As we pull together to make smart healthy decisions, we will come out on the other side of this stronger, smarter and more determined to make sure our children have the resources to lead in science, technology, engineering, math — or whatever else they choose to do!
Thank you for being such a vital member of the Discovery Cube family! Stay healthy and thank you for your support!

Please SAVE THE DATE to join us at next year’s Gala on Saturday, September 25, 2021. Fittingly, our theme will be “GIVING Back to the Future.” We are sure it will be a night to remember! Speaking of a night to remember, take a stroll down memory lane with us and remember some of our most remarkable galas, via our gallery of DISCOVERY CUBE OC GALA PHOTOS.
