The California Academy of Sciences 13th Annual Summer Gala

SAN FRANCISCO (June 3, 2004) Tunnel down to ANTicipation, the California Academy of Sciences' Thirteenth Annual Summer Gala on Saturday, July 31, to be held at the Regency Building, 1300 Van Ness Avenue in San Francisco. Inspiration for the annual summer gala theme came from the Academy's current exhibit, at 875 Howard Street, ANTS: Hidden Worlds Revealed. The museum is located at 875 Howard Street while the Academy begins a rebuilding project in the park. Co-chairs for this summer's wildest event are Dan Clifford, Shelley Dickerson, and Christina Lynch, who are bringing their excitement and great ideas to this festive affair. Absolute Vodka and Plymouth Gin cocktails, ANTsy hors d'oeuvres, music, and antennae-pulling fun are sure to be in store.
