Our signature fundraising event

The Columbian Ball

Thank you for an electric eclectic night!

On behalf of our 2019 Columbian Ball Co-Chairs—Erin and Jason Pritzker and Peng Zhao and Cherry Chen—we’d like to thank all of our sponsors and donors for supporting the Museum and helping to raise over $1.8 million for MSI’s exhibits and science education programs.

We hope to see you in October 2020 for the 40th Annual Columbian Ball!
