The Fleet Science Center’s 2020 Gala

Exploring Italy: A Wine and Culinary Journey

Saturday, May 2, 2020

6 P.M. at the Fleet Science Center, Balboa Park

Co-Chairs: Gary Parker and Gary Phillips


The Fleet Science Center invites you to participate in our fourth annual wine-paired dinner and fundraiser, Exploring Italy: A Wine and Culinary Journey. The spectacular evening will feature an auction of fine wines, experience packages and a gourmet wine-paired dinner.

The evening begins with an elegant reception and silent auction, offering more than 50 lots of unique wines as well as special experience packages with a variety of gift certificates and select items.

Then guests will be treated to a multi-course wine-paired dinner curated by Gary Parker, owner of the WineSellar & Brasserie, and renowned chef Andrew Spurgin. Gary and Andrew are back by popular demand for the fourth year and will once again create a magical and memorable dining experience.

Before the final dessert course is served, guests can support the Fleet Science Center by bidding on live auction items, such as private dinners and travel packages, or raise their paddle to make a donation that will support the education and community programs of the Fleet Science Center.

All proceeds from this event will directly support the Fleet Science Center’s exhibits, education programs and ongoing initiatives. The Fleet is passionate about our mission to realize a San Diego where everyone is connected to the power of science.
